The Lion
Proverbs 30:30
A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turns not away for any;

(to the young): —

1. A lesson of moderation. When the lion gets enough to eat, he is satisfied, and does not go on killing either men or beasts for the mere love of killing. The Bible rule about moderation is given in 1 Timothy 6:8.

2. A lesson of kindness. Some striking instances as illustration can be given.

3. A lesson of obedience. Illustrate from story of Daniel.

4. A lesson of gratitude. Illustrate by story of Androcles.

(R. Newton, D.D.).
