The Demand of Good

"Good demands of man every hour, in which to work out the problem of being," writes Mary Baker Eddy on pages 261 and 262 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."

We sometimes hear someone contending that it is not possible for such a demand to be taken literally. One will tell you that he must devote a great part of his time to his business; that he must give some thought, at least, to earning a living. The mother of a family may protest that if she gave every moment to studying the Bible and the textbook of Christian Science, her household would soon suffer from neglect. The college student may assert that the demands made upon his time by the study of subjects which are considered necessary for education, leave him little opportunity for the study of the Bible and Christian Science. And, speaking from the human standpoint, these contentions may not seem unreasonable.
