The Healing Touch

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 372) we read the following words: "In Christian Science, a denial of Truth is fatal, while a just acknowledgment of Truth and of what it has done for us is an effectual help." And on page 79 of the same book we read, "Giving does not impoverish us in the service of our Maker, neither does withholding enrich us."

In this blessed service our giving is not always expressed through the loaves and fishes, but may consist of our sharing with others the spiritual blessings which have come to us through the study and application of Christian Science, telling them the wonderful story of the overcoming—through the truth—of sin, sickness, or sorrow. As we lovingly and sincerely express gratitude for these blessings, at the same time we extend hope and encouragement to those who may be hungering and thirsting to hear of some experience perhaps exactly such as we have to tell; and our giving does not impoverish but still further enriches us.
