PARALLELS FOR PROGRESS

Thou renderest to every man according to his works.— Psalms.

The measure of divine equity meted out by infinite wisdom is not the wage doled out by the grudging genius of toil.

"According to his work," therefore, does the Christian Scientist measure each joyous mental ascent, or by contrast, account for any degree of discouragement. Every mortal day, though beset by countless counterfeits of true experience, presents an equal number of parallels for progress, as the following homely incident may illustrate.
