LOYALTY

One of the qualities most discussed among young students of Christian Science is loyalty. Loyalty to our movement as well as loyalty to home and family seem sometimes to have divergent claims.

In "Miscellaneous Writings" Mary Baker Eddy says (p. 12), "Every man and woman should be to-day a law to himself, herself,—a law of loyalty to Jesus' Sermon on the Mount." The Sermon on the Mount contains rules of conduct of the very highest order, wherein the false sense of self is overcome through spiritual love. It is impossible for one good objective to rule out another; each has its place and necessity. How, then, can there be opposing loyalties—legitimate family demands perhaps on one side, church duties on the other? If these are right demands, they are all governed by Love.
