Mrs. Conerly t, ook her Bible class to Baton Rouge Monday night to see the Billy Graham Whatsoever Things by Donald E. Wildmon EXTRA IF ASSEMBLED In a department store recently I noticed several new bikes on display. Since Timmy had asked for a new ten-speed bike, I de- cided to look at them closer. In small print on the price tags underneath the price was writ- ten: "$5 extra if assembled." I got to thinking about that. about bcw much that extra line applies to life. For life. you see, is like the bikeyou have to pay extra to get it assembled. Life never comes assembled, even though we quite often wish it would. How easy it would be if life came assembled in a neat package ready for instant use. But the truth of the matter is that it doesn't Each individual has to as- semble his own life, has to put it together himself. And, like the ,bike in the store, we have to pay extra for the assembling. If the person who puts that bike together follows the direc- tions which come with the pack- age, hat bike will provide yeats of service and withstand the bumps in the road over which it will be ridden. ife is like that, also. Put your life together following the Manufacturer's guidelines and you will be able to meet the bumps in life's road without damage. If you pay no attention to the instruction's for assembling either the bike ,or your life, you can expect trouble in trying to make either operate correctly. The Man of Galilee gave us the clue for putting .or life together: "Seek first God's way and the rest will fall in place." Despite many efforts, a better approach toward assembling life has not been found. We are given ,life, but not as a finished product. We have to put some effort into it if it is ever Vo work right. You wouldn't take that box of unassembled bike parts and shake it good and expect the bike to fall out of the box completely assembled and ready to use. Why, then. should one expect life to fall into place automatically. Life is far more delicate and has far more pieces to be fitted together than the bike. If your life seems to be hit- ting more and more bumps which are becoming rougher and rougher, it is probably be- cause you have failed to follow instructions in attemptng to assemble it. You can with your life, as with the bike, reassemble it if it wasn't put together right to begin with. It is foolish to hink that your life will automatically correct itself any more than the bike wlll You have to expend effort and follow instructions if you Friday, October 5, 7973 COURT CONVENES AT COURTHOUSE; 15 ARE INDICTED (Continued from Page I) United States Fid. & Guar.

Personally, I want my .life to be able to take the bumps. For that reason I try to follow the[ instructios given by my Manu- facturer as closely as I follow J those given by my bike's maker.
