Right Persistence

Many who are earnestly seeking the way of the Christ, Truth, often become discouraged because it seems to them that their progress is slow. It is true that when one glimpses the eternal fact that the power of God is ever present and that it is the only real power, one longs to know all about it immediately and to drop everything else at once. While some may gain such an inspirational sense of the healing truth that they are able quickly to meet their own difficulties and the troublous beliefs of others, yet faithful application of what we know of the truths that Jesus taught requires persistent effort, until it becomes habitual to think rightly about every situation that presents itself.

Only the Master did this perfectly; and undoubtedly there were years of preparation behind his marvelous, and yet divinely natural, public ministry. Mary Baker Eddy also, who earnestly followed the Christ, Truth, had years of trying experiences before she was able to give to the world, in such a form that it could be studied and practically applied, her inspired interpretation of the life and works of the master Christian.
