"Father, I thank thee"

Gratitude to God, expressed by the spiritually-minded in all ages, is more than a pious sentiment; it is a necessity of our well-being, for it is the acknowledgement of our dependence on God, an affirmation of our unity with our Maker. True gratitude is a constant attitude of receptivity, by which we become increasingly aware of the rich blessings that God bestows on His children. It is, moreover, an active uplifting of our consciousness to the one source, divine Mind, whereby we let our light shine for the benefit of others.

Christian Science teaches that God is the only Mind, and that man is the idea or reflection of Mind. In speaking of "the formations of the immortal divine Mind," Mrs. Eddy writes (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 189), "they proceed from the divine source; and so, in tracing them, we constantly ascend in infinite being."
