TRIAL AND TRIUMPH

Discord, trial, and mishap drive investigation back through the course of error to its cause, and for the reason that true premise and correct process, as we well know, always beget both the assurance and the realization of harmony. In view of our instinctive dread of the false, and our intuitive recognition of the true as the only valid basis of living, it will readily appear how significant to human weal is the Christian Science teaching that in "material belief, in all its manifestations, reversed, will be found the type and representative of verities priceless, eternal, and just at hand" (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 61).

Righteous endeavor carries sure reward, bountiful and sweet. Pain, disappointment, and repeated trial may long seem to be the only requital for the best intention and sincerest effort, but each experience, however bitter, is precious, since through it ignorant concepts are sure to be dissolved, a true habitation prepared for consciousness, and proper direction given to activity.
