Unselfed Love

When answering the question as to which was the great commandment, Christ Jesus, the Exemplar, stressed the importance of loving God supremely and of loving one another. He said: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."

The world today is in great need of true neighborliness or brotherly love. In the hearts of men and women weary of the disappointments of material seeking there is a longing for more than merely material things—a yearning for the tender, compassionate love of Christ. The Master said, "I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; even the Spirit of truth." This promise has been fulfilled through the advent of Christian Science, which is indeed the "Comforter," bringing regeneration and healing of sin, disease, sorrow, business difficulties—discord of every nature—to thousands of men and women throughout the world.
