MERIT AND REWARD

From the October 1912 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The question of reward plays a vast part not alone in the business world; it goes deeper, forming in many instances the incentive even for conduct. The fear of punishment on one side, and the promise of reward on the other, are held out so that mankind shall more readily yield to the demand for morality; and this is called religious teaching.
