OBEDIENCE

From the March 1922 issue of The Christian Science Journal


IT is one of humanity's many paradoxes that while the quality of obedience is universally recognized as essential to moral, social, civil, political, and religious well-being, the practice of obedience is almost as commonly resisted, at one time or another, in some way or other, in individual experience. This is because the so-called human mind in its blind and perverse way desires the reward that flows from a spiritual quality, while it evades the application of that quality or attempts to make it operate in a way opposite to its real nature.
