"Stop! Look! Listen!"

In the study and application of Christian Science the student may find, sometimes, certain words or phrases which act as monitors to his thought, helping him to keep in the direct course which he is desiring to pursue. One such admonition appears weekly on the cover page of the Christian Science Sentinel, in Jesus' words, "What I say unto you I say unto all, Watch." Thus did the Master enjoin his followers to keep constant and meticulous guard over their thoughts and motives.

There are other admonitions which may serve a similar purpose, such as "Stop! Look! Listen!" To those familiar with railroad crossings, especially those of an earlier day, these words may recall a familiar picture. At the point where the country road crossed over the railroad track there was posted the white, triangular sign with its warning in bold, black letters, "Stop! Look! Listen!" And there the driver would stop, obeying the command, and thus place himself on the side of safety.
