How many times?

From the March 1982 issue of The Christian Science Journal

How many times must one resist the temptation to act with less than his highest sense of right? How many times must one reject evil's claims to reality, influence, or attractiveness? How many times must one say no to the devil? As many times as it takes to stand with God. This is the answer I came to after mentally reviewing an unpleasant circumstance for the fiftieth or sixtieth time.
