"Bring ye all the tithes into the...

From the May 1937 issue of The Christian Science Journal

"Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it."

Christian Science teaches us how to recognize and bring all our tithes unto God, and so to open the windows of harmony and banish all fear, sickness, lack, sin, and hate; and to know the absolute presence of perfection surrounding, enfolding, and protecting us constantly. Mrs. Eddy so beautifully expresses it in these words from the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 569):"He that touches the hem of Christ's robe and masters his mortal beliefs, animality, and hate, rejoices in the proof of healing, —in a sweet and certain sense that God is Love."

I have been able many times to rejoice "in the proof of healing" and to know the "certain sense that God is Love." I had the privilege of attending a Christian Science Sunday School, for which I am most thankful, but it was not until I was far from home and among those who knew nothing of Science that I really discovered the wonderful truth of perfect Father and perfect son as revealed in Christian Science. I became very ill and at first did not know which way to turn; then I remembered very vividly the healing of my father of tuberculosis when I was a little girl. I turned wholly to the reading of my Bible and Science and Health, which I always carried with me, and I was completely healed. This opened a new earth and a new heaven to me. Since then I have been healed of wounds and scars resulting from an accident, of constipation, hemorrhoids, fear of paralysis, colds, and burns, and have experienced a painless childbirth.
