10 commandments book


The Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments, given by God to Moses, are among the fundamental lessons for children and adults alike. These laws address how to love God and live in harmony, and they give authority to those who are obedient to them.

The Ten Commandments are the foundation of spiritual education. In Deuteronomy, we read, "And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children..." (Deut. 6:6, 7). Mary Baker Eddy says in her book Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896, "Obedience to these commandments is indispensable to health, happiness, and length of days" (p.67).

The Story of Ruth


The Story of Ruth

Ruth, a Moabitess, accepts the one God and joins her mother-in-law, Naomi, when she returns to Judah. Both women are widows with no visible means of support, but through trusting God, Ruth finds food for them in the fields of Boaz, a relative of Naomi's husband.

Boaz praises Ruth for her rare devotion to her mother-in-law and to God, which was known among the people of Bethlehem. He later marries Ruth and provides a home for her and Naomi. His words to Ruth are true for everyone who loves God, "The Lord recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust." (Ruth 2:12).

The account shows God's direction and protection, as well as Ruth's, Naomi's, and Boaz's, genuine care for one another's welfare. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes: "Happiness is spiritual, born of Truth and Love. It is unselfish; therefore, it cannot exist alone but requires all mankind to share it." (Science and health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 57.
