"In God's creation ideas became productive, obedient to Mind." Science and Health, p. 544; writes Mrs. Eddy. Thus she sets forth a scientific law that governs man and the universe. Divine Mind directs and produces fruitful activity.
Christ Jesus was aware of this spiritual truth and was the most productive individual to walk the earth. The Bible records that once when he was hungry, he sought fruit on a fig tree. When he found nothing but leaves, he said, "Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever." Matt. 21:19, 21; And at once the fig tree withered away. When the disciples saw this, they marveled. Jesus then said, "If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done."
Jesus was clearly pointing out that faith is a quality of thought one needs to demonstrate divine power and to remove from his experience that which is unproductive. Jesus understood that there is no fruitless, barren activity in the kingdom of heaven.
