BROTHERHOOD AND SERVICE

From the July 1920 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Throughout the ages mortal man has vainly tried to escape all responsibility for his brother man. It is interesting to note that the first murderer of whom we have any record sought to evade the penalty attached to his wicked deed by asking the question, "Am I my brother's keeper?" It is fair to conclude from this that the thought which would repudiate the responsibility of brotherhood is a murderous thought, however much smug complacency would deny the startling deduction.
