The writer has often been impressed with the wisdom which placed the Master's words on the cover of our Sentinel, "What I say unto you I say unto all, Watch." Surely, none knew so well as did Jesus the importance of watching, for though "in all points tempted like as we are," by being ever watchful and alert to detect the suggestions of error as error, he had overcome the temptations and thereby had grown stronger in his knowledge of God, so that he was "without sin."

A Christian Scientist finds it needful to watch his thought constantly, for ofttimes the tempter would convince us that we cannot realize God's presence and power now, or that we cannot realize the truth and work out our problems in our present environment, but must wait until it has changed in order to do our work in Science. Error sometimes argues that human sympathy with our work in Christian Science is needed, but the promise of Scripture reads, "I will not leave you comfortless." God's tender love and comfort are ever at hand, if we will but "be still, and know."
