"A covert from storm and from rain"

It often happens that in taking up a new proposition in mathematics a student working faithfully to master and apply the rules laid down will find himself able to obtain the correct answer to the problems long before he really understands the basic law which the rules illustrate. He does his work mechanically, we may say, and seemingly expresses little real reasoning power; but there comes a day when, having, by strict adherence to rule, solved so many of his problems correctly, he suddenly, as if by revelation, finds the reason back of the rules, and so grasps the truth.

The analogy to this is found in the everyday life of the student of Christian Science. Convinced of the truth of the teaching—possibly through having witnessed seeming miracles as a result of it, through hearing testimonies of healing, or through reading the Christian Science literature, especially Mrs. Eddy's writings, or, as most frequently happens, through having been healed himself—he undertakes the real study of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." If honest with himself, he will apply what he learns as he learns it, and the immediate results will be to him like the golden glow of early morning, so colorful and soul-stirring as to remain in memory even after the sun has fully risen and perhaps been overcast with clouds.
