WHAT HAVE I TO GIVE?
Human nature frequently entertains false humility, which makes one belittle his own capabilities. Such a one looks longingly, even enviously at times, upon the capacities of some fellow church member and exclaims: "But he has so much more to give than I have. He has wealth, education, and natural abilities, but I have none of these things. I shall just sit quietly in my corner and let him do the giving until I attain a greater degree of understanding."
Mary Baker Eddy well knew the workings of mortal mind in this direction, for she writes in "Pulpit and Press" (pp. 3, 4): "Perchance some one of you may say, 'The evidence of spiritual verity in me is so small that I am afraid. I feel so far from victory over the flesh that to reach out for a present realization of my hope savors of temerity. Because of my own unfitness for such a spiritual animus my strength is naught and my faith fails.' Oh thou 'weak and infirm of purpose.' Jesus said, 'Be not afraid'!"
