Reaping "fruits of joy"

The record of the creation of the spiritual universe in the first chapter of Genesis includes the creation of man in God's image and likeness. Upon this child of God was bestowed dominion "over all the earth." Since the Bible has so clearly revealed the fact of the spiritual man's heritage of dominion, students of Christian Science endeavor in every phase of life to prove this heritage. Perfection is established, and it is for us to prove this perfection step by step.

When faced with the vicissitudes of weather, pestilence, and the possibility of crop failure, we are privileged to prove our dominion as sons of God in establishing harmony, and demonstrating abundance in garden, farm, and orchard. Incredulity and human resistance to Truth need to be oxer-come when we are working out problems of this nature in Christian Science, so that, unhindered, the light of Truth may permeate consciousness and destroy the seeming causes and suppositional effects of error. Thus, in the words of a hymn, shall we "reap the fruits of joy" and prove that man is never a victim of circumstance, but is coexistent with God, good.
