HUMILITY TRIUMPHANT

Only those men and women gain greatness who gain themselves in a complete subordination of self," writes the outstanding religious Leader of our times, Mary Baker Eddy (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 194). Men are ever striving to reach the goal of limitless good. Their sincere endeavors are repeatedly bent to the achieving of prominence in human affairs, the accumulating of personal possessions, or the acquiring of material knowledge. Yet, we have no record that such methods have ever led to the present demonstration of man's God-bestowed, dominion.

However, there are accounts, written many centuries ago, which tell of an individual's achievement of the goal and the manner of his accomplishment. The locale of these records is the Middle East. The individual is a member of a family in Palestine. He has been a carpenter by trade, but has forsaken his tools for the unique ministry of divine healing. He is young—only about thirty years of age—in the prime of his human manhood. His name is Jesus of Nazareth.
