Growing to impersonal Love

A student of Mrs. Eddy's once asked her what the difference was between personal and impersonal love. Mrs. Eddy answered in substance, "When your love requires an object to call it forth, you will know it is personal; when it flows out freely to all, you will know it is impersonal." We Knew Mary Baker Eddy, First Series (Boston: The Christian Science Publishing Society, 1943), p. 84;

Christ Jesus included all in his love. He companioned not only with the faithful and believing, but also with sinners to help lift them out of sin. Jesus had particular friends and helpers, including his twelve disciples, Mary, and Martha, yet his love was unlimited and impartial. He spoke the truth to those with whom he came in contact.
