Respect

The Denver Post provided a car to take ‘Abdu’l-Bahá to the Church of Divine Science. The Master told His companions: “Behold the power and confirmation of the Blessed Beauty: the pastor comes in person with all humility to invite us and the proprietor of the leading journal sends us an automobile for Our use, so that we may raise the Call of God in the church. Truly, such confirmations have never been seen in other dispensations and in no age is the Manifestation of the Cause of God met with such reverence and honor. But we must not consider that they are due to our address or our eloquence. These shining lights which you see will instantly darken if the origin of their bounty is severed from them.
(Earl Redman, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in Their Midst, p. 205)
