Lesson 4 - Keeping the Word
"As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also."
WHEN a student of truth begins to realize the power there is in true words, he naturally feels the desire to talk about it and tell his friends what marvelous changes have come to him in health, in peace, or in circumstances, from using the scientific mental arguments given in the second and third lessons.
We all feel this desire to share our new-found joys with our friends when these great truths first dawn upon us, and it is good for us to feel the desire. At the same time we would caution every student for their own peace of mind not to be too eager.
Until you are more familiar with the principles, perhaps your ability to explain your position is not equal to your zeal in wanting your friends to know the beautiful gospel of health and peace you have found; and it is wise to keep silent about the process by which you train your mind in the knowledge of truth, until you feel able to answer all questions that arise.
