"Thy Will be Done."

Christian Science , in its teaching that there is but one good for all, restores the undivided garment of righteousness, or rightness. It countenances no partial truths, makes no concessions to the "ifs" and "buts" of material hypotheses, and it refutes the doctrine of a mixture of good and evil elements in man's constitution and development. This point established, the lessons of daily life lose their bitter pangs, for thought, looking upward, receives the divine impulse, catches a glimpse of the universality of harmony and the mighty trend of its law.

Whatever is best, whatever is the divine plan for the Cause of Christian Science, is best also for the individual Scientist, and can work out only the ends of good wherever it touches human experience, for under the law of interdependent harmony there can be no divided duty, no element of loss in another's gain. The scientific sense surrenders the guidance of human affairs to divine Principle, and the Scripture is fulfilled: "Commit thy way unto the Lord; ... and he shall bring it to pass." We do not mould our own careers, in their events or potentialities; but "trusting God with our desires," as Science and Health declares (p. 1), they are moulded into right action.
