THE POOR WISE MAN WHO SAVED A CITY

From the April 1947 issue of The Christian Science Journal


" This wisdom have I seen also under the sun, and it seemed great unto me: there was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it: now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man. " This simple narrative, related in the ninth chapter of Ecclesiastes, has profound significance to the student of Christian Science.
