Watching the falling of leaves one day started an interesting train of thought—that of the law of reciprocity. There must always be giving and giving back. The tree sheds its leaves; these fall into the ground and give back rich soil which supports and strengthens the tree's life and growth. So it is with all plant life. When the plant sheds its leaves, the soil is enriched in which it grows. Likewise, the moisture from the earth drawn up by the sun forms clouds and returns again to water the earth.

Professor Drummond in "Natural Law in the Spiritual World" follows out this idea most interestingly, showing how everything in nature can be used as a means of understanding spiritual law. As the author of "The Greatest Thing in the World," he has helped many to go a step farther, and has prepared thought for the acceptance of the great truths of Christian Science.

Jesus often taught by parables, bringing spiritual truth to his hearers by instructing them along lines they could understand. In this way the spiritual lesson became a living reality rather than an abstract, academic theory.
