OUR WORK AND OUR PRAYER

"It is of comparatively little importance what a man thinks or believes he knows; the good that a man does is the one thing needful and the sole proof of rightness." This arresting observation is made by Mary Baker Eddy on page 271 of "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany." It should awaken us to the necessity of utilizing the truths of Christian Science, which she has given us, rather than merely contemplating them. Unless we are careful, we can become so absorbed in enlarging our theoretical knowledge of Science that we neglect to make proper application of the understanding we already possess.

One of the ways in which we all may use what we know of Truth is in the performance of our daily work. Whatever its particular nature, if it is fulfilling a legitimate human need, it is of value to mankind and therefore is a means of doing good. As such it deserves our fullest measure of right thinking and right acting.
