Dawn of Truth

Even in a criminal; a loving deed or any act of unselfishness is beautiful, and is a hint of the perfect man, created in the likeness of God, just as the first ray of sunshine which breaks through the morning darkness, is a prophecy of perfect day. As the first faint flushes of light at dawn are almost more beautiful than the full glory of noontide, because of the contrast with the ebony sky, so in a human character that has been blackened by error, the first faint expressions of goodness seem more beautiful, because of the background. Christian Scientists should be looking for good in character, even where there is no present expression of it. By so doing they will catch the first glimpse of the dawn of Truth in consciousness.
