This is from the bound collection that includes sermons from August 30, 1908 to November 26, 1908.

In this sermon, Davis argues that one's character is ultimately determined by one's clear thinking. He says, "Remember this above all things else, that the true nature of our work, its ultimate influence, and its final worth, is determined by the true nature of our inner and secret thoughts, our personal beliefs, our deeper convictions."
