Earnest Study a Help

"A Christian Scientist is not fatigued by prayer, by reading the Scriptures or the Christian Science textbook," writes Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, in the Manual of The Mother Church (Art. XVII, Sect. 1). To earnest and consecrated students of this Science the statement by their Leader is a constant source of encouragement.

When one is first awakened to this glorious truth, a small amount of reading and effort may seem sufficient to carry one forward in the daily pursuits. The time comes, however, when more time and effort is necessary to satisfy the craving for a fuller understanding of God, which Christian Science gives. As this state is reached by the individual, the truth of our Leader's words quoted at the beginning of this article is realized. These first moments of reading have grown into moments of study, then into hours of restful search for a clearer and better understanding of God, and of man in His image and likeness.
