THE GREATER POWER

From the August 1913 issue of The Christian Science Journal


THERE is an old-time children's story respecting a contest of strength between the wind and the sun which affords wholesome food for thought, because it illustrates this subtle but vital truth that real power is to be recognized not so much in the gain of a given end as in the method of its achievement. So long as the desire for or belief in error is allowed to influence thought, the necromancers of Egypt are apt to try to seduce men by imitations of the divine power demonstrated by Moses.
