"By their fruits"

MARY BAKER EDDY, in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," writes (p. 271): "Our Master said, 'But the Comforter . . . shall teach you all things.' When the Science of Christianity appears, it will lead you into all truth. The Sermon on the Mount is the essence of this Science, and the eternal life, not the death of Jesus, is its outcome." Because, as our Leader points out, the Sermon on the Mount is of such great importance, it must be to the advantage of every Christian Scientist to ponder, thoughtfully and prayerfully, the messages contained therein.

In this sermon Jesus said, "By their fruits ye shall know them." Surely these words are applicable to our thoughts; and we find in our study of Christian Science that it is our thoughts that count. Whatever our work may be, no matter how menial, if we do it to the glory of God, knowing that our real activity is the expressing of Godlike qualities, we may be sure that such thoughts will bring about the fruits of demonstration, proofs of our spiritual understanding or knowledge of the truth. These are the true thoughts which come from God, and which are based on Principle.
