Sort out truth from error

“An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi As a student of Christian Science, I can readily identify with this quote.

Make room for spiritual growth

When a gardener plans her garden, she first decides on what fruit she’d like to harvest, then plants her garden accordingly.
