This is one of nine sermons Earl Davis kept together in a string-bound collection. All but one are undated. The dated one comes with an envelope marked April 1, 1906. The other eight sermons were gathered together and hand-written on similar paper. Therefore, it is reasonable to date all of them from 1906, probably Spring 1906.
According to the opening, this is the second in a series of sermons on the 'Religion of Jesus and its Relation to the Religious Ideals of Today. The first focused on Jesus' appreciation -- and learning from -- nature. This focuses on Jesus' appreciation -- and learning from (love for) -- human nature.
