You Do Take It with You

The old play "You Can't Take It With You" was real fun. It gently and humorously made its point: no matter how great or small our accumulation of this world's goods, they won't go with us when we leave this earthly scene.

But there is one thing we surely do and will take along, and that is our state of spiritual growth—or lack of it. Christian Science reveals that if we have made good use of our life experience here by striving to put on the Mind of Christ, we then will be equipped for steady spiritual progress beyond the grave. And by the same token we will be better able to understand why the change called death has not annihilated our conscious identity. This understanding of Science can help us to quickly perceive and correct the error in thought that seemed to propel us through the doorway of death into a new stage of experience.
