Illustrations all showing the differ- j
ence between the real and the counter-j
felt success. The merchant who puts,
his own self-tnterest In place of ser- |
vice to the community, the politician'
who mistakes ambition for public I

are some examples, and everywhere
the sham besets the reality and tries:
to make men accept It In b.er plaoe.
To which clasa do we belong? As
we look at the life of Jesus there can
be r.o doubt about Him He trod pop- j
ulartty under His feet. He le*. pleas
tires go and lived a life of pain. Noth?
ing could weigh with Him against the J
necessity that He ehould do Hie j
Father*a will. And yet He was as ser
altive as the divine heart: He felt j
everv surrender as we cannot feel It. j
but He turned away to <3o that which
He had come to do. and as He looked
back on Hla brethren seeking their
pleasure It was with a keen apprecla- 1
tion of the lower success which He *
'.ad sacrificed that He might reach the
higher, though without a shade of re- !
gret at Its loss, that He said: "Yes. !
verily, they had their reward " And
those who know the heart of Christ
turn their backs on lower pleasurea J
with no aense af loss or bitterness: j
they do riot desire mere bodily com- |
forts; they do not yearn for eating
and drinking as the, sole end of life,
because they know the reward wh.ch
they have chosen. It will no more j
triuble such a man that lower ambi?
tions find their lower rewards than it
seems an injustice to a strong man.
