"What went ye out into the wilderness to see?"

Jesus said: "What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?"

A Christian Scientist was having a problem with her eyes. Her vision seemed blurred, and there was a belief of pain. Realizing that this condition was the result of wrong thinking on her part, she began searching her thought for the error to be corrected. As she studied the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly one morning she read these words in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 448): "Blindness and self-righteousness cling fast to iniquity." Then she saw that her thought had been filled with self-righteousness, pride, and arrogance, for she had of late been criticizing nearly everybody with whom she came in contact. After a church service, a board meeting, or a committee meeting, she had found fault with almost everything that had been said or done.
