When one is earnestly striving to live up to his highest sense of right, and to demonstrate in his daily thinking and living that good is the only power, it is often surprising what help and guidance will sometimes come from a simple word or phrase which has been read before but whose meaning has not been fully realized. Frequently some thought will be presented as the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly is being read which, when pondered, proves a staff on which to rely for days, or which may instantly meet and destroy some particular phase of error.

Take, for instance, the word "light." From Genesis to Revelation the Bible is filled with examples and illustrations of the power of light, and equally as often does Mrs. Eddy in her writings use the thought of light to illustrate the understanding of divine Mind. We know, through Christian Science, that this light, so frequently referred to, is not in any sense due to solar rays, but that, to quote from the definition of "morning" in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 591), it is the "symbol of Truth; revelation and progress." The very foundation of our understanding of the spirituality and immortality of God's universe is found in Genesis in the words, "And God said, Let there be light: and there was light."
