Memory of Good

[Original article in French]

One sometimes hears the parents of a young child who is learning his school lessons remark with some pride, "Oh, he has such a good memory!" and the child may continue with increased self-confidence in the ability of this so-called "good memory." Such was the case in the writer's experience as a young girl, till she began the study of Christian Science.

One day, as she was working in an office with a more experienced student of Christian Science, it seemed very important that she should remember to do a certain work at a certain time, and she said, "You may trust me to remember this, as I have a good memory!" Immediately the older student remarked, "Do you mean by that, that someone else has a poor one?" The rebuke was timely, and caused the writer to think carefully over what she had said, with the result that the thought of having a good memory was changed to that of possessing a memory especially for good.
