Correcting our motives

An affluent, healthy, comfortable existence in matter is not the goal of the Christian Scientist. His goal is to gain the Mind that was expressed in Christ Jesus, through which one can overcome the false claims of the material senses.

To attain this scientific, Christly consciousness we need to deliberately consider and correct our motives. Our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, states in Miscellaneous Writings, "The student of Christian Science must first separate the tares from the wheat; discern between the thought, motive, and act superinduced by the wrong motive or the true—the God-given intent and volition—arrest the former, and obey the latter. This will place him on the safe side of practice." Mis., p. 117.
