Sculpturing Thought

Each thought we entertain is to us a potential friend or enemy. We do well to cheek and challenge the suggestions that come to us and call themselves "our thinking." Mrs. Eddy gives this reminder in Science and Health (p. 248): "We are all sculptors, working at various forms, moulding and chiseling thought." Then she tells the value of holding fast to the right model, the model presented by spiritual sense, instead of the faulty, weak, insecure model the world presents.

If we allow our consciousness of love to be diminished even by a little, by just so much our sense of life is diminished. If we accept any concept of life other than the perfect and spiritual, we are setting up false models, false gods, losing sight of God the one supreme creator, and His creation. Are we accepting the truth of the timelessness of Mind's creating, or are we burdened with the false belief that man is a mortal who must wear out and die? As mortal beliefs are chiseled away, spiritual sense reveals the perfect man of God's creating.
