To my sense of things, the remedy for the condition that faces us [the negro problem] demands more than schools, or reformatories, or prisons. These all, doubtless, are helps, but the demand is for a higher Christianization, for spirituality, consecration, devotion on the part of each and every individual Christian. If every Christian had the zeal of Paul, so to fix his gaze on the attainment of spiritual understanding that he could say with him, "I count all things but loss... that I may know him, and the power of his resurrection," then the outlook would brighten.

If our affections were so fixed on things above, not on things on the earth, that selfishness, pride, avarice, and greed were quenched in the divine essence of unselfishness, the spiritual love that seeketh not her own, but another's good, that thinketh no evil,—if endeavor to acquire the unsearchable, imperishable "riches of Christ" were to supersede the striving for the vain and perishable, what would result?
