Motives and Methods

To one whose motives are right, error must present itself in very subtle ways in order to be accepted as truth. We need right methods in our endeavor to accomplish good, as well as right motives. Error would attempt to impede the progress of students of Christian Science by blinding them to the nature of error, which may include self-will. Only by setting self-will aside and humbly praying, "Not my will, but thine, be done," can God's purpose be revealed.

Mary Baker Eddy, the beloved Leader of the Christian Science movement, was successful in bringing its varied activities into being because she was truly humble, always listening for the "still small voice" to direct her. In no other way could The Mother Church, the Publishing Society, the Board of Lectureship, and the periodicals, including The Christian Science Monitor, have been established in all their order, harmony, and efficiency.
