The Day's Work

While the problem with many is lack of work, possibly quite as many are finding it difficult to know how to crowd into the short hours of the day the innumerable tasks that present themselves, and to perform them satisfactorily. One student of Christian Science, confronted with the latter difficulty, received much help through study bearing on the day's work, from the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Bake Eddy; and the light thrown thus on her problem will be found also to illumine the other.

In the story of creation, as recorded in the first chapter of Genesis, the day invariably consisted of the evening and the morning: "And the evening and the morning were the first day." There was no mention of night. In the Glossary of Science and Health Mrs. Eddy includes in her definition of "evening" (p. 586) "mistiness of mortal thought; . . . obscured views," characteristics of the early dawn as well as of the evening. But as the morning breaks, the mists are gradually dispelled, and the views become clearer. Mrs. Eddy defines "morning" (ibid., p. 591) as "light; symbol of Truth; revelation and progress;" and "day" (ibid., p. 584), in part, as "the irradiance of Life; light, the spiritual idea of Truth and Love."
