"Be Courteous"

In the first Epistle general of Peter "an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers [those "chosen" of God, who had been dispersed by persecution] scattered throughout Pontus," etc., this admonition occurs, third chapter, eighth verse: "Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous."

Webster defines courtesy as "an act of kindness or favor performed with politeness." Are we, as Christian Scientists, careful at all times and under all circumstances, to obey this injunction? Our Leader says we can obey the Scriptures in every instance. She, as does our Master, teaches us that Love is the fulfilling of the law.
