LOYALTY

THERE is no trait in the human character more beautiful than loyalty. It is the most desirable of mental possessions, natural or acquired. What would youth, beauty, wealth, or fame count for, in the choice of a friend, if that one were known to be disloyal? Where do we turn in our moments of deepest woe or highest joy? To the loyal, always! We are moved to admiration, blended with respect, even by the fidelity shown by animals; and this is loyalty's incomplete expression.

Loyalty is so requisite in our profession as Christian Scientists that we may well consider its more important demands. First of all we should manifest it toward God. Constancy, a dictionary synonym for loyalty, is one of God's attributes, and we should recognize the blessings flowing from a demonstrable understanding of Him "with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning," and endeavor to reflect this stability. If we do this, our entire allegiance is His, we are closely joined to Him in all our thoughts and desires in such unity as Science and Health teaches to be "at-one-ment."
