"Stir up the gift of God, which is in thee"

How good it is, when returning home on a cold winter's day, to find there are still embers on the hearth that can be stirred into flame to give warmth and good cheer!

In our lives in general, also, there is some vigorous stirring to be done to bring warmth and happiness to our days. The book of II Timothy shows us the Apostle Paul reminding his young pupil, Timothy, "Stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands." II Tim. 1:6 ; Paul had been the one through whom Timothy had been awakened to the inspiration and challenge of service to the cause of Christ.

How can we follow this admonition so applicable to us today? Christian Science shows us how. It teaches that the real man—each of us in our true being—is the reflection of God, the only creator and Father of us all.
