It Is written of iPlato that, "looking

be, gave thanks to God for three
things: First, that .he was created at
nan iand not a beast. Second, that
he was born a Grecian tnd not a
harbarian. Third, that lie was born
a posslible philosopher."

the Christian ideal. A boastful spirit
has no place in true thanksgiving to
God. The Pharisee who went ui) to
tlie temple to pray anud thiked Goi
that he was not ns other inei, was
roundly rebuked by Christ for his pre
