How gratitude leads to healing

First we need to define gratitude. Would you say it means being thankful for material benefits? Some people think it means that—thankfulness for tangible things ranging from a delicious holiday dinner to good clothes, a nice car, a beautiful new boat, or a lot of money if you have it.

Christian Science takes the materialism out of gratitude; it lifts our vision to the wonders of spiritual substance and intelligence. This Science introduces us to the gratifying joys of truly Christian motives and deeds. Instead of fostering an attachment to material conditions, good or bad, it turns us to the inspired understanding of spiritual cause and effect that brings dominion over material conditions. Christian Science focuses one's attention on divine Principle, Love, and on the demonstration of God's love and provision for man. And there's no subject more interesting, satisfying, quickening, or important than that. Science wakes us up to a new concept of man as God's perfect reflection.
