"Stick to the truth of being"

RALPH WALDO EMERSON has written: "The characteristic of heroism is its persistency. All men have wandering impulses.... But when you have chosen your part, abide by it, and do not weakly try to reconcile yourself with the world."

The persistency of the genuine student of Christian Science may seldom be lauded as heroism, but it consistenly approximates this quality. Having chosen his part, he abides thereby in face of whatever argument may arise as to the existence of worldly powers. Earthly laurels are not the Christian Scientist's objective. Rather does his consecration point to the pathway outward and upward toward spiritual being, wherein no material concept holds sway. By the prayerful study of Christian Science the truth of being may be learned and put to daily use in routing the falsely conceived propositions of the mortal or carnal mind.
