SCALING "THE PINNACLE OF PRAISE"

Concerning obedience to the Manual of The Mother Church, Mary Baker Eddy sets forth a cogent analysis, namely, "Of this I am sure, that each Rule and By-law in this Manual will increase the spirituality of him who obeys it, invigorate his capacity to heal the sick, to comfort such as mourn, and to awaken the sinner" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 230).

Note the positive assertion, "Of this I am sure." This surety of our Leader warrants compelling attention and forthright obedience on the part of those who call themselves Christian Scientists. Note also that Mrs. Eddy says she is sure that each Rule and By-Law, not just a chosen few, will richly reward the loyal observer. That being the case, the student of Christian Science joyously sets about to know his Manual better and to put into daily practice its sage precepts, being assured that in so doing his spirituality will be increased and his capacity to heal invigorated.
