From the November 1912 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Once a Christian Scientist was asked by a friend: "Does it not seem to you a sacrilege to expect the Almighty to act as your physician and heal your trivial aches and ills? Do you not hesitate to ask the Lord, in the midst of His mighty operations, to cure your headache?" It would be hard to illustrate better the subtle error which has crept into the human concept of God, by comparing the Mind which is infinite with that of finite personality. As human beings attain greatness, they fill their precious limited hours with fewer and greater concerns.
