TRUE SOCIAL VALUES
[Of Special Interest to Young People]
A Cinema recently presented an unhappy picture of the social life in a fictitious college. Unworthy standards, false ambitions, and loyalty to traditions which were not meritorious led to insincerity, artificiality, and unkindness toward others, with serious results in the lives of some of the students.
It is natural for young people in colleges, in the business world, or wherever their occupation may be, to enjoy good times in groups when duties permit. There are, however, social values which are more desirable and more worthy of attainment than those which are usually striven for. These do not include or involve material glamour, personal popularity, or flattery. Instead, they include the expression of the naturalness of Truth, the radiance of divine Love, the spiritual attraction of divine Mind. These qualities— wherever expressed—heal, bless, and add immeasurably to the wholesome enjoyment of companionship with others.
Even in these ultramodern times we can always find in the experience of Jesus, as recorded in the New Testament, an example for our conduct and a solution to our problems. In this matter of social contacts it may be helpful to recall that Jesus was sometimes present at what might be called social gatherings. We read that he and some of his disciples were once guests at a marriage feast in Cana. At another time he sat down to eat in the house of Simon the Pharisee. And Levi, later called Matthew, soon after he became a disciple of Jesus, made a great feast for Jesus in his own house.
