Throughout the ages, the hearts of men and women everywhere have thrilled to the thought of home, and all for which it stands—loved ones, peace, security, a refuge from discord, loneliness, and temptation.

We have great cause to rejoice when we consider that, through obedience to the teachings of Christian Science, we may gain a spiritually demonstrable understanding of our true mental home, which is forever above discord and strife, change or decay. This understanding is a "pearl of great price" to those who are in search of happier homes, improved environment, contentment, and peace.

Do we not choose the furnishings for our material homes with the utmost care, selecting the best, the most beautiful and most appropriate appointments we can afford? With how much greater care, then, should we choose the thoughts which are to furnish our mental abode, prayerfully cultivating thoughts of purity, beauty, joy, innocence, and gladness, and with equal diligence rejecting unlovely suggestions of malice, criticism, discouragement, lack, and the like. The continued welcoming and cherishing of spiritual ideas and qualities enriches our lives unbelievably.
