Time is fleeting. Resources are short. In the best of all possible
worlds, we might be able to make any compromises, but we do not live
in the best of all possible worlds. Constantine taught us that.
In an experiment conducted by some psychologists, a class of divinity
students, one by one, was sent off (belatedly, due to bad planning)
and told, as a final exam, to hurry over and give an expository sermon
on the meaning of Luke 10:30-37.
The experimenters, in order to test them, had placed certain
distractions in the way of the students -- even a person who was made
to appear injured and in need of medical assistance. Practically none
of them shirked their true duty, but went on to give the sermon
without wasting any of their professors' time.
Truly, if the head of the house embodies such unimpeachable character,
we need not hold any doubts about the spiritual condition of those
living within the house.
