Example

In Christian Science, teaching is accompanied by example. The Apostle Paul well knew the value of a good example. In his letter to the Philippians he said, "Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample."

A Christian Science mother, ever alert to the desirability of teaching her young children the necessity of showing a good example, as proof of their spiritual training, said to her little boy as she sent him into the park to join his playmates, "Remember you are setting an example as a little Christian Scientist, and so are good, loving, and kind. But if you are tempted to be selfish, spiteful, and unkind, your playmates will not want to get acquainted with Christian Science."
