PRACTICING CONSISTENCY

Mary Baker Eddy prophesies in "Pulpit and Press" (p. 22): "If the lives of Christian Scientists attest their fidelity to Truth, I predict that in the twentieth century every Christian church in our land, and a few in far-off lands, will approximate the understanding of Christian Science sufficiently to heal the sick in his name. Christ will give to Christianity his new name, and Christendom will be classified as Christian Scientists." After pondering these words, the writer realized that she, as an individual, could contribute the most toward the fulfilling of this prediction by practicing as consistently as she possibly could what she already knew of the truth.

It is the privilege of us all to demonstrate each day something of this Science. In proportion as we do, we shall be known as "doers of the word" (James 1:22). Mrs. Eddy tells us in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 354): "Consistency is seen in example more than in precept. Inconsistency is shown by words without deeds, which are like clouds without rain."
