The Larger Horizon of True Living

We are prompted to more thoughtful endeavor toward nobler living only as we awaken to its larger significance.

When Jesus said, "I have overcome the world," he spoke of the most splendid personal doing known to men or angels, for in these few words were gathered up all the unnamed temptation, the unseen heroism, the unmeasured agony and self-sacrifice of the most brave, most pure, and most true life ever lived. To his family, his immediate followers, and his race it had a scope and intensity of significance which none would venture to outline, and yet how meagre and inadequate would be our thought of the great Way-shower and his work, were we to consider his life apart from the larger context of this brief summary which he gives of it.
