WATCH AND PRAY

In her "Miscellaneous Writings" Mary Baker Eddy writes (p. 110): "Beloved children, the world has need of you,—and more as children than as men and women: it needs your innocence, unselfishness, faithful affection, uncontaminated lives. You need also to watch, and pray that you preserve these virtues unstained, and lose them not through contact with the world. What grander ambition is there than to maintain in yourselves what Jesus loved, and to know that your example, more than words, makes morals for mankind!"

In the fifth chapter of Galatians (verses 19, 20, and 21) Paul sets forth the errors which need to be overcome by mortals, and in the following two verses he gives us the result of the spiritualization of thought when he says, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."
