Our Highway

If we are earnestly seeking the understanding of the Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," conviction gradually dawns upon us, that many of our disappointments are the result of a misconception of God and our fellow-man; that many of our troubles are caused by entertaining an exaggerated sense of our brother's faults, or of his virtues.

What are we, to demand perfection in others? The best that we can say for ourselves is, that we are endeavoring to conform our lives to the teachings of our text-book, Science and Health. This brings error out from under cover, and too often we gaze with horror upon the uncovered sin of our brother, placidly unconscious of our own shortcomings. We gradually learn to appreciate the labors of the pioneers of this work; to marvel at their courage in blazing the path for themselves and for us. As we realize that the gnarled trees have been hewn down and the boulders removed, we forget to censure them for the clump of weeds, or the unsightly mound, but we stoop and help remove the objectionable feature. Thus the way becomes easier for us all, and Isaiah's word promises fulfilment, "And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; ... the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein"
