Eastern Star is a social order comprised of persons with spiritual values, but it is not a religion. Its appeal rests in the true beauty of the refreshing and character-building lessons that are so sincerely portrayed in its ritualistic work. A deep fraternal bond exists between its members. It is the wholesome relationship of sisterly and brotherly love brought about through high principles exemplified in our lives which makes us near and dear to each other.
Job’s Daughters International is the ONLY international organization for girls that requires ALL OF ITS MEMBERS to have a relationship to a Master Mason, and while it is no part of the Masonic Fraternity, this pre-requisite ties it closely to the Masonic Order. (A daughter of a Majority Member shall also be eligible for membership)
In general, the Book of Job teaches us a Masonic optimistic lesson – Not to fall in despair; it shows that Masonic ideas are imperishable. We see this exemplified in Job’s life. Job saw the growth and upbuilding of his home, he also saw its ruin. but again he beheld its revival and reconstruction.
