Modesty an Essential Virtue

St. Paul said, "Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind." This means that in his struggle to arrive at proper conclusions and practices one should be allowed the freedom of untrammeled individuality. He should be permitted to rely exclusively on divine guidance,—not a mere choice of his own will as distinctive from the will of others, but in keeping with the Scriptural text, "Thy will be done."

Numerous instances in the life of Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, demonstrate the fact that an unselfish and implicit reliance upon divine Mind insures a guidance which is far superior to one's own conviction of the right course. She was constantly being led into decisions and actions, not knowing at the time why, although discovering later the wisdom of the course.
