When one begins to study the truth and measure events by the standards of Christian Science, it is soon learned that opportunity is one of the good things that is always at hand. Error always claims to counterfeit good, and so-called mortal mind appears to set up temptation as an imitator of opportunity, assuming presence, power, and activity.

This became clear to a young student of Christian Science. When under great provocation to express ill-temper, she suddenly saw that here was an opportunity to reverse this effort of evil and prove that love "is not easily provoked." Again, upon hearing some useless gossip, she saw that the temptation to repeat it was an opportunity to keep silent, and let the error die for want of circulation. Following this came a temptation to believe the testimony of the material senses when sickness appeared; and again was found an opportunity to prove the presence and power of Truth to destroy error.
