"Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it" (Mal. 3:10). In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 595), our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, defines tithe in part as "contribution" and "gratitude." I have expressed gratitude many times at Wednesday testimony meetings for the blessings I have received through Christian Science and feel that it is now time to contribute to the periodicals through a testimony of healing.

It was a blessed day when the textbook came into our home. It opened the Bible for me and brought such inspiration that after several days of reading I found that I did not need to take medicine that for many years I had used daily for constipation. This was thirty years ago, and there has been no medicine used in our home since.
