Erasing the Error
[Written Especially for Young People]
A young student had never seemed able to attain satisfactory grades in her school studies, and as she advanced to higher classes she keenly felt the need of improving her grades and overcoming a sense of inferiority, failure, and disappointment. Accordingly, she resorted to long and late hours of study, with continual assistance from others, but without success. As her need grew more obvious, and dependence on material methods had failed, she turned to divine Mind for her help.
Upon seeking aid through Christian Science, she was reminded of her neglect of preparation for Sunday school. The advancement of her spiritual understanding was pointed out as essential to her demonstration of true intelligence. Being a pupil in a Christian Science Sunday School, and desiring to do all she could to solve her problem, she willingly and sincerely undertook to erase from her consciousness the errors of mortal mind which seemed to be impeding her progress.
Upon arising each morning, and before engaging her thoughts in material duties, she proceeded to study the current Christian Science Bible Lesson in the Christian Science Quarterly, and such articles appearing in the authorized Christian Science literature as seemed to be applicable to her circumstances. Thus she was spiritually refreshed and enlightened, and gained a better understanding of her real self as God's perfect child. She began to silence erroneous suggestions and to express more love and harmony in her relations with others. She faithfully studied her school lessons, and when she received her next report card, about six weeks later, all but one of her grades were substantially increased, some of them being the highest obtainable. Furthermore, she found that she had more time for recreation and for special studies in which she had wished to engage, and still maintained the higher grades in her required studies.
