"ALERTNESS TO DUTY"

In the Church Manual by Mary Baker Eddy, we find under the caption "Alertness to Duty" (Art. VIII, Sect. 6) the By-Law which reads in part, "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."

It is impossible to obey one part of this By-Law without obeying it all; that is, fulfilling our whole duty to God includes fulfilling our duty to our Leader and to mankind. Similarly, fulfilling our duty to our Leader includes discharging our duty to God and mankind, and fulfilling our duty to mankind is dependent upon doing our duty to God and to our Leader.
