Simple Beginnings

How many of us, on first coming into Christian Science, listen with admiration to the testimonies given at our Wednesday evening meetings, and long for the time when we, too, shall be able to practice Christian Science with such sure results! Little do we realize at first that the understanding of this blessed truth must come by gradual unfoldment, each little step being presented to us just when we are ready for it, and that we ourselves must open up the way to receive more, by making good use of what we have.

Suppose, for example, that a student wished to learn shorthand. How would he set about it? Surely he would obtain a good textbook on he subject, and start by practicing the simple rules at the beginning of the book. Even if his knowledge of other things were very great, still he would carned, and become as a little child so far as shorthand is concerned, and start at the beginning. Then, having mastered the first simple rules, he would be ready to progress, gradually becoming more proficient.
