THE LAW OF PROGRESS

The progress of the human race heavenward cannot be measured according to any intellectual standards. Some of those regarded as the brightest intellects of the ages have been slaves to the most degrading of habits. Material accomplishments may seem to embellish and to smooth life's pathway, but they also bring their responsibilities and heartaches. Sooner or later the mortal comes face to face with the stern fact that all the knowledge of the world of sense cannot relieve him of the discomfort and unhappiness which the accumulated learning of years has brought him.

Finally, through sore trial and anguish of heart, he finds himself listening to the advice of some kind friend, to try Christian Science, and as it is his last resort he heeds the invitation and meekly asks for help. In due season it comes, often so speedily that he can scarcely believe it possible. He begins to read, to study, to ponder the Christian Science text-book, and as thought is uplifted to behold the heretofore unknown and unseen facts of existence he exclaims, "It is wonderful! Why did I spend all these years in ignorance of my spiritual birthright? Why was I not sooner led to this blessed truth which heals and purifies and saves? Why did God permit me to remain so long in ignorance of my freedom and health and happiness?" As thought advances from faith to understanding, all these questions are answered to his entire satisfaction, and he learns to rejoice in what he now knows about God.
