The world is in the habit of measuring success by...Alfred Edersheim was a Jewish Christian scholar. His most famous book is "The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah", a careful abridgment of which was made and published just after his death. This chapter is from that edition."And He spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? Shall they not both fall into the ditch?"Oh, how little we know about heaven here! How little we know about that great crown that God has in store for you and for me, if we will repent, and be faithful until death! But the angels know.God not only rules Christians; He rules the universe. "In Him we live, and move, and have our being," whether we are children of God, or an Alexander the Great. In Him we live, and move and have our being, whether we are the apostle Paul, or some scientist. Do not imagine for a single moment that all the great movements in the world today are human. God is back of them.
