"Order is heaven's first law"
[Written Especially for Young People]
The poet's line, 'Order is heaven's first law,' is so eternally true, so axiomatic, that it has become a truism; and its wisdom is as obvious in religion and scholarship as in astronomy or mathematics," writes Mrs. Eddy on page 87 of "Retrospection and Introspection." Our Leader observed this law. Sibyl Wilbur, in her "Life of Mary Baker Eddy," says that Mrs. Eddy's life "was fixed by a very punctilious order." What a glorious example! What an inspiration for us to bring out a better sense of order in our lives!
Confusion, upheaval, chaos flee before the order of such spiritual qualities as peace, tranquillity, strength, courage, and dominion. Truly ordered thinking, under the control of divine Principle, is bound to heal any disordered condition in human experience, for where there is a high sense of order, disorder has no place. In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 402) our Leader writes, "Science cannot produce both disorder and order."
A student of Christian Science, who was known to have accomplished much, was asked, "How do you do it?" and she replied: "By order. By doing one thing at a time and doing it well. By always knowing before attempting anything that all things are finished in Mind, and appear in their proper order." Paul admonishes, "Let all things be done decently and in order."
