The Good Samaritan

Our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, gives us, on page 210 of "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany," this remarkably clear admonition: "Beloved Christian Scientists, keep your minds so filled with Truth and Love, that sin, disease, and death cannot enter them." How necessary for our protection to be obedient to her advice!

Jesus, when asked by a lawyer what he should do to inherit eternal life, referred him to the Mosaic law, telling him that he must love God with all the heart, mind, soul, and strength, and his neighbor as himself. The lawyer then asked, "Who is my neighbour?" Jesus replied with that incomparable story of the good Samaritan, who, finding one wounded by the wayside and stripped of his raiment, had compassion on him, bound up his wounds, took him to a place of shelter, and paid for his care. The Master's final advice to the lawyer was, "Go, and do thou likewise."
