Honest Gratitude

The Christian Scientist cannot be too ready to express his gratitude to the devoted and conscientious workers who have helped him to gain a better understanding of his true being. Sometimes error would try to keep him from acknowledging the good received, and so would retard a healing. God bestows all good upon His children; but we must learn to receive gratefully, and as the reflection of God must express good to one another.

Our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, writes on page 232 in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany," "The right way wins the right of way, even the way of Truth and Love whereby all our debts are paid, mankind blessed, and God glorified." When, prompted by gratitude for good received, a sincere effort is made to meet an obligation, the way will open to surmount the seeming difficulties, and the obligation can be met without hardship.
