"As a very little thing"

One of the strongest convictions of the human mind is its belief in the grading of difficulties. This problem is accounted easy of solution, that one more difficult, whilst yet another is set down as necessarily insoluble. Faced with any particular question, the human mind braces itself suitably for the task. It calls to its aid what it considers the requisite amount of assistance and, in proportion to the accepted gravity of the case, its fears are increased.

Now Christian Science teaches that there are really no degrees of difficulty in any problem which the student of Christian Science is called upon to solve. As Mrs. Eddy makes so clear on page 418 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," one erroneous condition is no more difficult to heal than another. "It must be clear to you," she says there, "that sickness is no more the reality of being than is sin. This mortal dream of sickness, sin, and death should cease through Christian Science. Then one disease would be as readily destroyed as another."
