"Treasures of Truth"

At a Wednesday evening meeting, during the time allotted for the giving of "experiences, testimonies, and remarks on Christian Science" (Manual, p. 122), one who testified to the healing power of divine Truth, as revealed through "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," spoke of being helped and uplifted through each effort to apply the truth, but added, "Many times I have said I would leave a problem to Truth, and then have done nothing at all; but I have learned that it is my work to find the correct solution of that particular phase of error, to search the Scriptures and pray earnestly for wisdom, to work until that condition is overcome; then I can truthfully say that I have applied Christian Science and have left the problem to Truth."

This testimony brought a clearer light regarding that phrase, "leaving it to Truth," which is apt to slip so glibly through the thought and often means that little or nothing is being done by the one in question. We all know that in the case of a difficult selection of music the student does not leave the piano with the remark, "I will wait until I can play it perfectly;" nor does a mathematician leave a problem expecting the answer to "come." There is often much patient work needed in either case, and how much more in the search for wisdom, which we are told in Proverbs to seek "as for hid treasures."
