Gratitude

There is perhaps no virtue so undeveloped in the human race as gratitude; yet we find today an ever awakening impulse on the part of those who are being roused from the apathy of mortal sense and its dreams, to a deeper, more conscientious expression of gratitude to our heavenly Father. This is called forth by the gift to mankind of a plain and practicable understanding of divine law as applied to every ill "that flesh is heir to," through the teaching of Christian Science as revealed to the present age in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy.

From the Latin gratus, meaning "thankful," comes our beautiful English word gratitude. Its very formation and appearance when written bears with it a sweetness and bigness which causes us to search for it among the beautiful blossoms of the tree of life, to see how much of this precious fruit can be gathered and laid upon the altar of divine Love. Christian Scientists as a people are learning to be grateful. Each day finds the earnest, honest effort expressed in word and deed, bringing with it the peace "which passeth all understanding" and that much looked for rest for the children of God.
