"Give her of the fruit of her hands"

The history of Christianity shows that those who have understood themselves to be chosen of God for a special mission—those conscious of living and fulfilling God's purpose—have often been misunderstood and not believed. Mrs. Eddy was no exception.

When Moses was to go into Egypt and lead the children of Israel out of bondage, he despaired of making them believe that he had been sent by God. In Exodus we read, "And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The Lord hath not appeared unto thee." Ex. 4:1; Being obedient, Moses was able to lead his people out of Egypt, and the Red Sea parted. Even after further clear proof of divine guidance and protection, in which quail covered the ground and water flowed from the rocks, they turned back more than once to their false idols and threatened to stone Moses; they began to doubt that God was guiding him each step of the way.
