Our Unpayable Debt of Gratitude

Riding on a crowded intercity bus, I could not avoid hearing the account of family misfortunes a man behind me was giving to the passenger in the seat next to him. Thinking what a blessing the study of Christian Science could mean to the man, I was startled when, as if in response to my thought, he said to his fellow passenger, "Well, my wife and I tried Christian Science for a while, but we just didn't get anything out of it."

How I longed to turn and say to him, "Oh, but what did you give to it?" For it is the gratitude we give to Christian Science and the attitude with which we give it that brings us uncountable blessings.
