Duty and Ability

Bringing to fulfillment a worthy undertaking, achieving success in legitimate business, proving the presence of wisdom, understanding, and ability with which to meet pressing problems, are worth-while accomplishments. The right-minded individual naturally desires to witness the righteous, profitable, and satisfactory conclusion of well-spent effort. To give help in time of need, to be of service, to complete some task which will benefit others as well as themselves, are normal desires of all right-thinking men and women.

Unfortunately some accept the belief that they are handicapped by one or more phases of restriction, such as limited education, lack of courage, unsuitable environment, illness, and no favorable opportunity. Therefore they feel that worth-while accomplishments and splendid results within reach of others are beyond their own ability to achieve.

Like a shining light dispelling dismal darkness, Christian Science comes with a message of hope and joy, bringing to one and all the assurance of an adequate and ever-present help—the help of infinite divine Principle, God. This infinite Principle is the Principle of Christianity, the eternal foundation of Christian Science.
