Prophesying correctly

Do we realize how often we unwittingly make seemingly innocent remarks that prophesy erroneously, such as: "I (or she or he) will never learn!"; "I'm going to travel now while I can still enjoy it."

Mrs. Eddy has given members of her Church "A Rule for Motives and Acts." Part of it concerns the need to overcome prophesying erroneously. This sentence reads: "The members of this Church should daily watch and pray to be delivered from all evil, from prophesying, judging, condemning, counseling, influencing or being influenced erroneously." Manual of The Mother Church, Art. VIII, Sect. 1.
