ALLEGIANCE TO GOD

From the January 1916 issue of The Christian Science Journal


IN the thirtieth chapter of Deuteronomy we read that Moses said to the people: "I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: that thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days. " The whole record of the Jewish people points to an intense conviction that if only they could ascertain and obey the will of God, all the problems of existence would be solved.
