OUR DAILY FOOD

As we push manfully on in the study of Christian Science, we find that there must be constant watchfulness over our thoughts, and a glance at the average daily newspaper, magazine, or "up-to-date" novel forces us to the conclusion that there is but little of enduring good set forth therein for the perusal of the followers of Christ.

The selection of reading matter to be made by a Christian Scientist is of the utmost importance, and in Science and Health Mrs. Eddy has given us many counselings regarding it. In contrasting the early life of the great Teacher with that of the materialists of his day, she writes: "His senses drank in the spiritual evidence of health, holiness, and life; their senses testified oppositely, and absorbed the material evidence of sin, sickness, and death" (p. 52). Can we devour the news of the day as set forth in the usual metropolitan daily, become absorbed in the tide of melodramatic fiction which crowds the pages of many of the monthly magazines, or follow the shady characters portrayed in a large proportion of present-day society novels, and feel that we are giving heed to the apostle's admonition to let that Mind be in us "which was also in Christ Jesus"?
