Solving the Student's Problem

[Written Especially for Young People]

Sometimes it is asked by the older pupils in Sunday school, "How can one do God's work and 'pray without ceasing,' especially when the days seem so fully occupied with studies preparatory to a future career?"

In "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 166) Mrs. Eddy answers this question where she says: "This spiritual idea, or Christ, entered into the minutiae of the life of the personal Jesus. It made him an honest man, a good carpenter, and a good man, before it could make him the glorified." This shows that honesty and goodness are qualities through which we can express the Christ, and we can begin at once to bring them into our lives. Just as Jesus worked to express perfection in every small or seemingly trivial detail, so must we; and the more nearly perfect our work in these details the more nearly perfect will the larger result be.
