"THE LOVE OF GOD."

In all the teachings of Jesus there is nothing more pronounced than his desire that men should love one another, even as they are beloved of God. John, the disciple so close to the Master, amplified this precept in the text, "If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?" Centuries before David (well-beloved) had said, "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!" and this expresses the ideal for all who follow Christ.

Mrs. Eddy has brought this truth home to Christian on page 7 of "No and Yes," in the words, "No personal considerations should allow any root of bitterness to spring up between Christian Scientists, nor cause any misapprehension as to the motives of others. We must love our enemies, and continue to do so unto the end. By the love of God we can cancel error in our own hearts, and blot it out of others."
