To-day is a little word, but it is fraught with infinite meaning. In the third chapter of Zechariah we find this declaration of the Most High: "I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day." The chapter that follows tells of the spiritual illumination which made this possible, and in it we read these significant words: "Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts." This relates itself quite naturally with the opening words of the Christian Science textbook,—an inspired message which has brought hope to unnumbered thousands of hopeless mortals and pointed the way to health and harmony. The passage, which is to be found on page vii of the Preface to "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," reads, "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings." A wonderful message of divine Love, truly, to usher in each day of the year!

Throughout the Scriptures we have many warnings against the danger of neglecting to-day's possibilities. The ninety-fifth psalm in glowing words tells of the goodness and greatness of God, and then the shepherd king says: "For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your heart." In the epistle to the Hebrews we find this admonition repeated, and the text reads, "Exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin." Then this wonderful assurance follows: "For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end."
