Cultivate Spiritual Sense!

In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy writes (pp. 209, 210): "Spiritual sense is a conscious, constant capacity to understand God. It shows the superiority of faith by works over faith in words. Its ideas are expressed only in 'new tongues;' and these are interpreted by the translation of the spiritual original into the language which human thought can comprehend."

A fallacy sometimes entertained by those who are becoming interested in Christian Science is that they are not spiritually-minded enough to grasp it. Learning that spiritual sense is essential to understand God, they believe that they do not possess this sense. The truth is that everyone's real individuality, whether he recognizes it or not, possesses spiritual sense. It needs only to be utilized and cultivated. Kind, loving, unselfish thoughts indicate a spiritual sense which is already implanted in our consciousness.

As in a garden overgrown with weeds many lovely and valuable plants may be hidden, so to the human mind swamped with materiality the gems of spiritual thought, which are really native to man's consciousness, seem lost.
