Just because so many things are in conflict does not mean that we ourselves should be divided.…How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone who will give himself up undividedly to a righteous cause? Lately I’ve thought often of a story from the Old Testament: Moses stood all day and all night with outstretched arms, praying to God for victory. And whenever he let down his arms, the enemy prevailed over the children of Israel. Are there still people today who never weary of directing all their thinking and all their energy, single-heartedly, to one cause?
