A Leader to Follow
A Leader may be defined as one who guides, who directs thought and action, and who instructs followers. Leaders remembered in history have been great in proportion to the greatness of their purpose. W hen their purpose has been to influence followers to give up unworthy or aimless living and to find a purer selfhood in the ideals of life they have set forth, such leaders have deserved the respect and gratitude of mankind.
Those who accept Mary Baker Eddy as their Leader know that she fulfills every requirement of great leadership, not only because through her writings she guides and instructs her followers in finding and achieving noble goals of life but because she herself followed Christ.
Near the close of her Message to The Mother Church for 1901, Mrs. Eddy said (p. 34), "Finally, brethren, wait patiently on God; return blessing for cursing; be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good; be steadfast, abide and abound in faith, understanding, and good works; study the Bible and the textbook of our denomination; obey strictly the laws that be, and follow your Leader only so far as she follows Christ."
