God's Way is Good

In that remarkable sermon which Jesus delivered from the hill above Gennesaret, and which we all tenderly and reverently refer to as the Sermon on the Mount, our Master laid down for us in language terse and strong, the rules by which we could distinguish right from wrong, the real from the unreal, the good from seeming evil, and thus be equipped to detect error and armed to overcome it.

The numerous lessons taught by him at that time become plain under the illumination of the spiritual understanding shed upon them through a study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker G. Eddy, and as their real meaning is apprehended, we find ourselves prepared for the work of demonstrating their truthfulness in the way and manner in which the Master intended that they should be proven, that is, by works rather than by words.

In the light of recent occurrences, one of the statements made by him on that memorable occasion has stood out more clearly to me than ever before. He said: "A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit."
