Joy and Gratitude Inseparable

Joy and gratitude go hand in hand, and they cannot be separated. Where we find one, we find the other. Joy is an indispensable quality in the returning of thanks to God for all good. The giving of thanks to God is simplified in Christian Science, for as we gain an understanding of God we no longer measure our gratitude according to the material things which we may possess. Rather are we grateful for the true ideas which come from God, and through which is given supply for human needs.

We can always be grateful for Life, Truth, and Love, whence flow all true ideas to harmonize material conditions and solve our problems. In the Scriptures is given the assurance, "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." God's "good" gift is always perfect. Right ideas appear with the incoming light of Truth.
