Claim the reward
Our Way-shower, Christ Jesus, makes it quite clear in his parable of the talents that there is a rich reward for conscientious, steady, fruitful work according to individual initiative. Effort was similarly rewarded. The servant who worked to turn his two talents into four came forward and was just as praised and honored as the five-talent person who gladly presented ten talents to his lord: "Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord." Matt. 25:21.
As we joyfully accept the revelation of Christian Science, which is God's law, our love for God, infinite Spirit, becomes richer and more active. We gratefully strive to know God as eternal Life, omniscient Truth, and omnipresent Love; and this involves a constant effort to turn away from material sense views and to discern what God, divine Mind, is conscious of. Being receptive to the truth that man is the compound idea of God—God-created, God-maintained, inseparable from his Maker, reflecting all the qualities of his Father-Mother—inspires us to express these qualities in daily life, qualities such as love, constancy, and integrity, to name a few.
