The Need for Humility

[Original article in German]

As the writer sat by the window one sunny autumn day studying the Bible Lesson from the Christian Science Quarterly, her eye fell upon a sunflower whose head was bowed with the weight of the rich seed.

Involuntarily the thought came to her: What an illustration of humility, which in deep gratitude lays its fruit at the feet of divine Love! In the summer the sunflower stood erect, its golden blossom turned to the sun. Its flowering head grew larger and larger, and the stem grew higher and stronger, until it was strong enough to withstand a severe storm. Now it stood bending under its rich burden, and had it not been firmly rooted it could not have carried the treasure.
