True Gratitude

To-day , while striving to prove ingratitude unreal, the solemn question, "Are we really grateful for the good already received?" (Science and Health, p. 3), voiced itself to my awakening consciousness as never before. And then I pondered the question, searching my own heart, only to find many ways in which I might have manifested the deep gratitude I feel for what Christian Science has brought to me. For many years I have tested it, and proved it to be the Comforter, which is leading into all truth. I have proved it, in my individual consciousness, to be the healer of sin and disease; and with the understanding which comes through one's own purification, I have utilized this unerring Principle in the endeavor to aid others, who have sought the help, and have seen error, in all its phases, dissolve into nothingness.

There is no gratitude so sincere as that manifested in a life consecrated to God, the false sense of which is hourly laid down, in the destruction of human selfhood, whereby the life "hid with Christ in God" appears.
