SEEING AND ACTING

To the true Christian Scientist seeing is acting,—one is identical with the other,—and thereby mankind may come to understand the practical nature of Christian Science. It may be that one's "besetting sin" is drowsiness, or laziness, or inaction of any kind, such as procrastination; but do we realize that we have omnipotence at our side to aid us in overcoming the evil propensities of mortal mind?

The Christian Scientist realizes that his first step is to declare the truth. We read that "the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him;" then let us act. If the besetment is drowsiness in the morning, we can declare the truth the night before, affirm that evil of any nature cannot keep us from activity. the manifestation of Life. Mind will then bring it to pass that we shall wake up in due season, and when awake we should get up. If action does not follow, of what avail is the declaration?
