Is It Our Excuse, Too?

Billy Sunday is credited with the story of a Negro convert whom he stopped one day and asked the question: "If you were walking along the road and saw a low branch and on that branch a nice fat chicken, what would you do?" "Please don't ask me dat question," begged the Negro. When Mr. Sunday insisted upon an answer, the Negro replied: "Well, Mr. Sunday, you know Ah's only an infant in de Kingdom.'' It is to be feared there are many infants in the Kingdom who are not young in years, but who have failed to grow because they have not made use of the means of grace.—The King's Business.


Brother Jones' Testimony?

One of our evangelists in the earlier days was accustomed to tell a story of an old farmer who, in the prayer meetings of his church, was wont, in describing his Christian experience, to use the phrase, "Well, I'm not making much progress, but I'm established." One springtime, when the farmer was getting out some logs, his wagon sank in the mud in a soft place in the road and he could not get out. As he sat on top of the logs reviewing the situation, a neighbor who had never accepted the principle of the old man's religious experience came along and greeted him: "Well, Brother Jones, I see you are not making much progress, but you're established."
