GOD'S "WELL DONE"

In Jesus' parable of the talents the reward of the worker faithful to his trust is beautifully stated in Matthew (25:21): "His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee rules over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord." In the Father's service we are given the talents required to fulfill His purpose joyfully, and our daily living brings to us opportunities to exercise these God-given talents. But in Christian Science, achievement, success, and fruitfulness find their source in Spirit. As Spirit, God, is understood and His power felt we work wisely, thus bringing healing to human affairs, in proof that that which reflects divine Mind is unerring and irresistible.

Ordinary human planning, mortal will, material modes, must be laid aside. The human must surrender to the divine, to the Christly, enlightened mode of working. To be done aright, the work must be a lifting up from material methods to the status of unselfed spiritual knowing, being, and doing. This is serving and worshiping God "in spirit and in truth."
