Many appreciations were given of the Right Hon. John Morley. Mr. A. G. Gardiner, writing in the Nation, says of him: “In an active life that covered nearly half a century of history, he played a part as disinterested, as elevated, and as free from blemish as that of any man in our public annals. Neither as journalist, author, nor statesman, did he fall on any great issue below the high standards which he professed, and by which he lived. He never trimmed his sails to the popular breeze, never deserted a cause which he believed to be just, never put truth in the balance against any private end. To his essay ‘On Compromise’ he affixed this motto: ‘It makes all the difference in the world whether we put truth in the first place or in the second place.’ It may, I think, be said with confidence that no man in our public life ever lived more steadily and unfalteringly by the lamp of truth than John Morley.”
Thus says one of the great statesmen, as viewed from the outside. Sometimes we lack in appreciating each other as believers in Christ. We need to follow Paul’s example, and record what we see in others.
