Christian Science in Daily Life

I Desire to express my gratitude for what Christian Science has done for me in a business way. I do not mean in a financial way only, but also in all intercourse with my fellow beings; in the home and out of it.

So much of the sorrow and trouble of life comes from differences with our fellow mortals. Now the teachings of Jesus give us infallible rules as to how to overcome all these, and the revelation of Christian Science shows how we can make practical all those sayings of the Master.

One is the "Golden Rule," another, "Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him." At the first intimation of trouble or disagreement with another, when anger, however slight, or resentment and its accompanying sin, self-justification, come up, handle it quickly. Do not give back the bitter or self-justifying word, nor even harbor its corresponding thought. If you do, these sins will grow. They are but fuel to a flame. Meet the desire for evil thinking instantly, with the thought that, divine Love governs man,—the other one as well as yourself.
