Truth Recognized

To those who are eagerly looking forward to the establishment on earth of the universal knowledge of God as omnipotent and omnipresent, there sometimes comes a sense of disappointment when friends and those dear to us show indifference after some study of the authorized literature of Christian Science. We should not, however, be troubled, for they will sooner or later long to know God. Does not the Bible say, "They shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them"? Our work for the hour is to apply to ourselves Jesus' counsel to Peter when he was unwisely concerned about what another should do. "What is that to thee? follow thou me." To wait patiently for the indifferent one to change his attitude is all we can do.

But there is another whom our heart yearns to help and assure, and that is the one who though sincere in his study still doubts whether Christian Science is of God and is the truth promised by Christ Jesus. To many of the students of Christian Science this phase of the mental journey is quite familiar, and when we think of those who are meeting this same condition to-day, it is comforting to read what Mrs. Eddy says on page 127 of "Miscellaneous Writings": "When a hungry heart petitions the divine Father-Mother God for bread, it is not given a stone,—but more grace, obedience, and love. If this heart, humble and trustful, faithfully asks divine Love to feed it with the bread of heaven, health, holiness, it will be conformed to a fitness to receive the answer to its desire." With the earnest hope that it may help some one to find God, who is Life, Truth, and Love, the writer is glad to tell of an experience in this connection which came to her, destroying once and for all the enemy, doubt.
