in reality they are very small. Strip off theirgaudy tinsel, and but little would be left.Other people, however, are greater than theyseem. They lack the popular qualities whichattract attention and win applause. Yet theyare great in their souls — great in intellectualqualities, in heart power, in the elements of true manhood, in moral strength. But there isan eye that sees all things as they are. Itpierces all thin disguises, penetrates to the coreof things, and discerns the poor shrivelled soulthat is hidden beneath the external glitter. Onthe other hand, it sees in the lowly life, whichgets but little praise of men, whose outer formis homely and plain, the true worth, the quali-ties which are excellent, the character whichbears the marks of divinity.It is well that we sometimes stop to think how we appear to God — what God thinks of us.Goethe says : " There is something in everyman's heart, which, if we could know, wouldmake us hate him." Perhaps this is true, butit is true also that there is something in everyman, in even the most repulsive man, which, if we could know, would make us love him. AsnoGreat in God's SightGod sees us, we are both worse and better thanwe seem to any other eyes in all the world.He sees the hidden faults and the secret stains ;he sees also the feeble yearnings which at lengthwill be splendid spiritual qualities.
