Joy in Doing Good

In his epistle to the Galatians Paul writes: "Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men;" and on page 192 of Science and Health Mrs. Eddy writes: "Your influence for good depends upon the weight you throw into the right scale. The good you do and embody gives you the only power obtainable."

The joy of doing good cannot be adequately portrayed in human terms. It is indeed that experience of life which the heart alone knows best, and which the heart cherishes above all else. He who does good to the best of his ability loves and honors good supremely. He who makes good his constant companion and guide walks in the straight and narrow way of righteousness and peace, the way to heaven, harmony. Such a one is enabled to glimpse the eternal reality of things and gradually to rise above that which would tend to hinder and burden and enslave. He is enabled to discern the truth of being and therewith work out his own salvation, at the same time letting his light shine among men.
