Lately I have been discouraged by the thought that my growth in Science was very slow, and I sometimes wondered if I grew at all. I was recently helped by this thought. When a child I never worried about the growth of my body. I felt sure that although I could not see daily a rapid growth, yet I was growing slowly and naturally, and some day I would find myself full-grown.

So it is in Science. We may not seem to ourselves to be growing very rapidly, but if we look back a few months, or years, we shall see that things which then seemed dark to us, and which we could not comprehend, are now clearly understood, and we know that we have made some progress on our heavenward journey. If we will only go on day by day taking up our cross, conquering the claims of error one by one, and living up to our highest understanding of Truth, we shall grow.
