Loving-Kindness ! How the warmth and glow of the thought floods the heart! Loving-kindness is an attribute of divine Love and is expressed through man. When the spiritual sense of love is attained, we express this quality. In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy writes (p. 272): "The spiritual sense of truth must be gained before Truth can be understood. This sense is assimilated only as we are honest, unselfish, loving, and meek."

Christ Jesus perfectly exemplified the power of loving-kindness. His every thought, word, deed was compassionate. He made manifest the Father's love set forth in the words of Jeremiah, "The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee." He went about doing good, binding up the broken-hearted with words of comfort and cheer, healing the sick and sinning with pure compassion: the fetters of their bondage fell off immediately before the light of divine Love so clearly manifested in him.
