Embracing Opportunities

The student of Christian Science early learns that to put Truth first is wisdom and brings manifold blessings. To acknowledge God in all our ways is to prove that He directs all our paths. Spiritual sense alone governs man. This is true self-government, and ultimates in harmonious, wellordered lives. To have no other aim than to express good is to lift the burden of labor, weariness, and disappointment, and to banish fear.

So often one is persuaded to let an opportunity to receive more of good slip by. Possibly we deprive ourselves of attendance at a church service, a Christian Science lecture, or of the study necessary for our enlightenment. The excuse may be that business, social duties, or home cares make it impossible; but if the desire to learn more of God is great enough the way always opens. "Desire is prayer," writes Mrs. Eddy in Science and Health (p. 1); and the desire to gain more spiritual understanding is a prayer that is always answered.
