THE FOLLY OF DISCOURAGEMENT

From the February 1903 issue of The Christian Science Journal


We not unfrequently hear new students of Christian Science express discouragement because some discordant condition does not yield readily to their treatment; but we all need to learn that these problems are the test of our real understanding of Truth, and are as necessary to the attainment of a demonstrable knowledge of Christian Science, as the sums we had to do at school were necessary to a correct and practical knowledge of arithmetic. Through demonstrating the unreality of these conditions we reach a higher understanding of the infinitude of Good, and make just that much progress toward man' s rightful dominion.
