Daily Watch for the week of February 21st – February 28th, 2016
From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
482 — WATCH that you remember that Jesus compared the error in you that causes you to see an error in your brother man, to his error, by declaring that it was as a beam is to a mote. A mote would be a very small particle of a beam. When we become aware of the error in others, we should remember that our work is to deal with the error in us that makes it possible for us to behold error in others. Then and only then are we really in a position to help our brother. The error in us that sees error in others is what we must deal with and cast out. See Matt. 7.
To The Watchersfrom Watches, Prayers, and Arguments, as given by Mary Baker Eddy, page 49
“Hear, O Israel, for the Lord, our God, is one God.” You are not to come in your own name to pray. You are not to control any mind. You are to come only in the divine strength, and know that God will rule and does, and that hypnotism and evil minds cannot, and do not, control men or governments. All power is God, good. This is my only formula to Christian Scientists for prayer, and God will give you faith that will remove mountains.
