This article was later republished in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany: My. 228:11-229:18

WHO shall be greatest? The great Master said: "He that is least in the kingdom of heaven"— that is, he who hath in his heart in the least the kingdom of heaven, the reign of holiness, shall be greatest. Who shall inherit the earth? The meek who sit at the feet of Truth, bathing the human understanding with tears of repentance and washing it clean from the taints of self-righteousness, hypocrisy, envy—shall inherit the earth— for wisdom is justified of her children.
