Who shall be greatest? * Wer soll als der Größte gelten?

An inspiring appeal from the Christian Science Monitor on making one’s heart wide – as wide as possible – for a truer sense of brotherliness. From this article:

“…Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of The Christian Science Monitor, explained in 1902 that “competition in commerce, deceit in councils, dishonor in nations, dishonesty in trusts, begin with ‘Who shall be greatest?’ ” Speaking of God as divine Love, she said, “To live and let live, without clamor for distinction or recognition; to wait on divine Love; to write truth first on the tablet of one’s own heart, – this is the sanity and perfection of living, and my human ideal (“Message to The Mother Church for 1902,” pp. 4 and 2)…”
