The Good You Know—Do

Ever since the belief in one God was accepted by the Hebrews the axiom has been more or less entertained that doing good must be its own reward. In the face of great appreciation for kindness done, a man once said, "I can only bow my head, point where the stars shine brightest, and say, Doing good must be its own reward."

The idea of one God has endured through all forms of misrepresentation and misinterpretation—pagan belief in the anger and wrath of God; willful distortion to suit private ends; an emotional God; a humanlike God. From out of all this seeming chaos God has come to mean to Christian Scientists the one and only perfectly good Being. God is good, good from which it is absurd to believe evil can come. God is the Principle of good, of good infinite, all-pervading; so there is no place where good is not.
