Christian Science and the Young Man

Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.—Psalms.

Nothing speaks better for a young man than a clean character. Any man who is clean, temperate, polite, cheerful, and honest will attract attention; his company, as well as his services, will be sought after, and he is bound to succeed. The best thing for him to have back of all these virtues is a religious spirit. This may seem unnecessary to some, yet we must remember that all truly great men were characterized by a religious spirit. Washington, Lincoln, Gladstone, and many other great statesmen were all models of noble, honest living, and their success and greatness was due to the fact that they possessed deep religious convictions and lived up to their highest sense of right.
