Many have loved the familiar and beautiful description of a virtuous woman to be found in the last chapter of the book of Proverbs, but until enlightened by the revelation that Christian Science throws upon the Scriptures the reader fails to comprehend the full import and beauty of the character portrayed by the wise man. "She looketh well to the ways of her household."

With what diligence, wisdom, and patience did our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, so guard her consciousness that it might be a fitting temple to receive the revelation of Trust's immortal idea which came to her waiting thought! With what love, compassion, and tenderness for mankind were all her thoughts and motives imbued; with what untiring devotion of thought and energy did she labor that this revelation might be available for all!

How earnestly did Mrs. Eddy impress upon her students and followers the need for purifying and guarding their consciousness from all erroneous mortal beliefs! In her book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" she reminds us, on page 235, that no aggressive suggestions of error can find lodgment in a consciousness where "virtue and truth build a strong defence."
