Please, no counterfeits!

From the April 1979 issue of The Christian Science Journal


If you were collecting antiques, would you knowingly accept a poor imitation? Who wouldn't prefer the genuine original? All too frequently we accept a counterfeit concept of ourselves. If we believe that we are unhappy, sick, poor, frustrated, unloved, we are being as impractical as if we had eagerly traded a priceless antique for a cheap fake.
