A Helpful Lesson

Having some stitching to do one afternoon, and wishing it to be done perfectly, I attached a guide to the machine, and began the task. My duty consisted in keeping the work close to the guide, but anxiety made me constantly look for results, and the outcome was that the work slipped away from the guide, and had to be repeated. I did not obtain perfect results until I steadily watched the guide.

We, as Christian Scientists, desire perfect results in our work of healing and uplifting mankind. Our duty, clearly, is to keep thought fixed steadfastly upon Principle; our work close to the guide Christ, Truth, and to have no anxiety or doubt concerning results, but simply to know the work is being done perfectly.
