Ability to Think Rightly

The words of the Psalmist in the fourteenth verse of the nineteenth Psalm set forth the earnest desire of the humble: "Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer." They long to think correctly; they long to speak and to act so that they may help, not hurt, their fellow men. The evil thinker and the evil doer may seem to be much in evidence at times, but they are far outnumbered by those who would have their thinking and living in harmony with the will of God, the perfect will of God.

One of the many helpful things which Christian Science does for men is to teach them the nature of their true spiritual status, and how to think rightly. It reveals to them the truth about man, namely, that he is the son of God, and that as the son of God he reflects God, being endowed with spiritual power to know all right ideas. Men may think otherwise and believe that their ability to know true ideas and to think rightly is limited, but the truth is that the real selfhood of each of us, being the reflection of God, has the ability to know all spiritual truth and to express it.
