"Ready to distribute"

In the first epistle to Timothy, Paul charges "them that are rich in this world, ... that they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate." This charge may be profitably considered by Christian Scientists in their loving labor of distributing the good which has come into their experience through the study of Christian Science. While this service must, of course, be rendered under the impulsion of divine Mind, thought given to readiness for such work may prove helpful.

To be "ready to distribute" in Christian Science requires care and wisdom; and the work of distribution is not confined alone to the dissemination of our Christian Science literature, but embraces all the activities of the Christian Science organization. Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, has wisely made many provisions for the proper circulation of the truth of Christian Science, and, in so doing, gives us plenty of opportunity to be useful in this important work. At the same time and with these same provisions, she prevents in large measure the indiscriminate, and perhaps faulty, dissemination which might be involved in uninstructed personal effort.
