"WHILE YOU WAIT"

Some shop signs give assurance that work may be done for customers while they wait. It may be observed that one man sits impatiently by while the repair is proceeding; another, of more methodical habits, finds contentment in reading or profitable thinking while he waits.

As a result of the imperfections of mortal existence, the human mind, impelled by spiritual perception, is ever looking expectantly forward toward future betterment. Hope and endeavor anticipate enhanced joys, but to those who know nothing of the scientific thinking and practise of good, anticipation is often clouded with much uncertainty. The practical Christian Science worker, however, sees a scientific certainty; the way grows brighter "unto the perfect day." Nevertheless, he does not spoil the present and rob himself of the future by looking and longing for that future so intensely as to fill the present with discontent. This not only prevents the recognition and enjoyment of today's good things, but it unfits one to demonstrate better conditions for tomorrow or to enjoy them should they come to him.
