Praise and Thanksgiving

Throughout the book of Psalms, praise to God is greatly emphasized; and, with the Psalmist, every consecrated Christian knows of a surety that "it is good to sing praises unto our God." That this spirit of praise and thanksgiving strikes a responsive chord in the heart of mankind is indicated by the fact that the Psalms are so frequently read by lovers of the Bible.

Students of Christian Science recognize the importance and necessity of obedience to the admonition repeatedly found in the Scriptures to praise God; and as they gain some clearer concept of the Supreme Being, they awaken to the fact that ritualistic worship of God does not beget true praise, for praise, is an affirmative state of thought inseparable from spiritual understanding. Through study of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, they learn to discern, accept, and acknowledge God's allness and almightiness, with thanksgiving and songs of rejoicing. This is not necessarily audible or verbal praise, but a joyous consciousness of the omnipresence, omnipotence, and omniscience of God, good.
