Spiritual Attraction

[Written Especially for Young People]

Among the youth of our day certain remarks may frequently be heard which indicate that the desire for popularity has a strong foothold in human consciousness. There are, however, many in the ranks of the Christian Science movement who have learned the truth of Mrs. Eddy's words in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 102), "There is but one real attraction, that of Spirit."

One dictionary defines the word "popularity" as "something intended to catch the fervor of the people;" in other words, something to win personal applause. If the motive in this desire for popularity be analyzed, it may readily be seen that, though often unconsciously so, it is far from being a Christian motive. And should not all desire to be Christlike? That there is nothing dull or unattractive in Christliness is shown by Christ Jesus' words, "And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me."
