The Rewards of Giving

Many of those who turn to Christian Science for the first time do so with a more or less selfish end in view. That is to say, they turn to it in the hope of getting relief from one phase or another of human discord. They are not so much interested in learning about impersonal truth as they are in finding a way out of personal error.

The Master, clearly recognizing this human tendency to get instead of to give, said to the multitude that had followed him, "Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled." Nevertheless, Jesus was untiringly patient with them, even as experienced workers of today should be untiringly patient with these who are taking their first steps in Christian Science.
