Preparatory Waiting

For the successful accomplishment of any kind of work there is need of careful preparation. For this reason children are sent to school, and young men and women spend years of study fitting themselves for some chosen life-work. The greater the work to be accomplished, the more rigid are usually the experiences and the longer the time needed for preparation.

An illustration of preparatory waiting may be found in the life of Joseph. When a mere lad he had dreams and visions of such a nature as marked him as one to whom some great life-work would be given. But he must be made ready; and as he grew to understand that his visions were a manifestation of God, divine Principle, to him, he came also to know that his preparation was governed by God's law.
