Right Activity

ALONG with its many other blessings Christian Science is bringing to all who are receptive a better and an enlarged sense of right activity. In a very illuminating article, in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 230), Mrs. Eddy says: "Three ways of wasting time, one of which is contemptible, are gossiping mischief, making lingering calls, and mere motion when at work, thinking of nothing or planning for some amusement,—travel of limb more than mind. Rushing around smartly is no proof of accomplishing much."

Earnest students of Christian Science find it increasingly necessary to learn how to use their time advantageously. Spiritual progress naturally brings with it the desire for greater growth, which leads to more and more study of the Bible and of our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and the other writings of our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy. Church membership, with its various duties and obligations, also demands its generous share of time and thought, which every loyal worker is sincerely desirous of giving it. Inasmuch as regular daily duties, social obligations, and reading or study habits keep one quite fully occupied before becoming interested in the Science of Christianity, it is obvious that the old order of doing things must change if one would give to Christian Science the time and effort which are so essential to steady growth and progress.
