Daily Watch for the week of February 28th – March 6th, 2016
From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
27 — WATCH lest you believe that you are trying to perfect yourself, rather than to make a channel of yourself through which the perfect idea of man may be expressed. There is a distinction between trying to make a perfect man of yourself, and trying to express the perfect man through yourself. There is a difference between washing a window because you like to see the glass clean, or because you desire to have the light shine through perfectly.
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.
