Exercising Faith

Exercise is defined, in part, as, "Habitual activity or practice. ... Exertion for the sake of training or improvement." This word, then, indicates the keynote of harmonious living, and is of vital importance to us.

In Hebrews we read, "Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby." When the experiences of depression, sorrow, sickness, sin, or lack of supply along any line seem grievous, and we wish these experiences to cease, then the "exercise," the regular, habitual performance of right thinking—in other words, the using of our understanding of Christian Science—will yield "the peaceable fruit of righteousness." It will destroy the error by establishing good in our consciousness.
