In a world measuring power largely by material standards, the voices of those declaring the power of morality may sound feeble. But the truths uttered are not feeble, and they should be heeded, for they accord with the inspired precept of the Scriptures (Ps. 20:7), "Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God."
From various quarters one hears today of deep concern that Christian nations are trusting too much in material power and not enough in moral might. The warnings come that the nations engaged in an effort to defend themselves from aggression are working chiefly for their own interests, and are not making a sufficient endeavor to share with backward peoples the good which has come to the world through enlightenment.
Of course, many such efforts are repulsed. Tradition does not always yield quickly to improved methods of production, distribution, and consumption, which determine the living standards of mankind. Endless patience, impelled by good will for all mankind, will break down this resistance as moral power, embodied in unselfed love, urges its own recognition. Moral might must not be forgotten in the rush to compete for material superiority. Matter does not hold the ultimate answer to might, however effective matter may appear to be.
