Christian Science is bringing home to us to-day what Moses endeavored to bring home to the children of Israel many centuries ago—the fact that the protection and loving care of God must be demonstrated by each one individually, irrespective of environment or any material condition. After depicting the blessings following obedience, and the consequences of disobedience, Moses declared: "This commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off. It is not in heaven. ... Neither is it beyond the sea. ... But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it." Surely, this is a call to each and every one to consider.

Every individual has his own thoughts; and the only one who should have control over those thoughts ought to be the one thinking them. Moreover, the thoughts which one is thinking to-day help to determine one's condition to-morrow. Each individual must be regarded as responsible for his own thinking.
