"Heaven's first law"

[Written Especially for Young People]

"Order," Pope defines as "heaven's first law." Commenting on this statement, Mrs. Eddy says (Retrospection and Introspection, p. 87), "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."

The quality of order, then, is plainly of prime importance, and should be given first place in our thinking if we expect to demonstrate harmony in our experience. Orderly, reasoned, accurate thinking is capable of all good. Confused, unreasoned, erring thought leads to unhappiness and defeat.
