"Progress is the law of God"

"Progress is the law of God." This dynamic statement may be read on page 233 of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy; and we can rejoice to know that we are under this law. Once we glimpse even a very little of divine Principle, of Life, Truth, and Love, we find ourselves in the line of spiritual progress, where there is no stopping or turning back—where we must advance.

In this advance we are not at the mercy of ourselves or of others. What a hopeless task it would be if we were! What a rough way the so-called human mind would provide for itself! But as we accept the truth of our kinship with the loving Father-Mother God, we find ourselves under His law. Under this law we need not plot or plan, for this fostering Principle is ever operative. It but remains for us to lay aside self-will, and with grateful humility become spiritually aware of its operation. We shall then find ourselves on the way.
