From Our Exchanges

[Zion's Herald]

It is a common experience to hear men complain that they "cannot see things" as the Christian views them. Of course they do not, for they live too low to glimpse the verities of a spiritualizing faith. The curvature of the earth is so considerable that those who hug the surface of things cannot make out the peaks that loom only for the watcher in the crosstrees. Men see then as much as they care to see. Christmas island—which may mean any good and beauteous thing—is there all the while in absolute fact, but it exists relatively only for the man who climbs to gain the vision.

Life is one vast potential, and it is ours, by the grace of God, to translate its possibilities into a series of actualized achievements, rising from plane to plane, going from strength to strength, and passing from glory to glory. Great views are to be had from up aloft.
