"The song of Christian Science"

Our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, from the depth of her understanding and the height of her great spirituality, repeatedly admonishes us to be spiritually alert. She says (Message to The Mother Church for 1900, p. 2), "The song of Christian Science is, 'Work—work—work—watch and pray.'" She emphasizes the great importance of our doing the necessary protective work every day. Indeed, only as we individually do our metaphysical work, watching that the ever-available truth is brought into our lives, are we singing that song.

It is vitally important that the student observe the By-Law entitled "Alertness to Duty" (Manual, Art. VIII, Sect. 6): "It shall be the duty of every member of this Church to defend himself daily against aggressive mental suggestion, and not be made to forget nor to neglect his duty to God, to his Leader, and to mankind. By his works he shall be judged,—and justified or condemned."
