Every sincere person desires to see his work succeed and to enjoy the fruitage of his own labor. Disappointed hopes have caused many to realize that an understanding of God is essential to progress, and that spiritual preparation alone ensures success. The inquirer then asks himself: Where is the right starting point? How can I acquire these Godlike qualities of thought which will yield the desired harvest?

Inspired by the wisdom gained through years of fruitful activity, Paul declared, "The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." What a glorious assurance of freedom and protection this declaration of truth conveys! It is plain that when the desire to understand and to express these qualities of Christian character is put into practical operation there is no law which can operate to obstruct or to interfere with their successful demonstration.
