What grandeur and glow there is in the thought of the early morn, when comes the dawn, the awakening to a new day, in which to live and move in accord with all that means light, life, and love! Mankind has associated the morning with luminous skies, singing birds, glistening dewdrops, rose-tinted mountain peaks, and an awakening to new aspirations for more light, for that which is higher, healthier, and holier.

Sometimes there is a mistaken tendency of overardent religionists to becloud and condemn human life; while Jesus' way was to encourage to a more abundant sense of life. He said, "The Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them;" and again, "God is not the God of the dead, but of the living." Mankind should be encouraged to feel purity of thought, joy, and gladness; aye, even sinlessness! In "Unity of Good" (p. 49) Mrs. Eddy says, "The more I understand true humanhood, the more I see it to be sinless,—as ignorant of sin as is the perfect Maker."
