Working for Truth

"The song of Christian Science is,'Work—work—work— watch and pray,'" writes our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, in her Message to The Mother Church for 1900 (p. 2). A song lightens labor and enables the singer to press on in step with his fellow workers. Where there is joyous harmony, there can be no labored sense of being, and how quickly the differences of opinion, the doubts and fears of mortal mind, disappear when the song of gratitude pours forth from loving hearts! The hymn of praise enables the student of Christian Science to bring healing and love to himself and others.

The world needs workers of the right sort today. The Christian Science church provides the opportunity for all to work for Truth. As men turn heavenward along the straight and narrow way, they can learn to demonstrate, as did Christ Jesus, the ever-presence and all-power of God, thereby proving impotent the aggressive suggestions of mortal mind. Are we faithful to our understanding of man's at-one-ment with God and obedient to His directing?

When David came to the camp of the Israelites, who were confronted by the armed forces of the Philistines, he found them mesmerized by the challenging aggressiveness of Goliath. David was not bewildered by the evident show of material force, nor was he abashed by his elder brother's condemnation, for he declared. "Is there not a cause?" He was perceptive of divine power. He knew that God supports and blesses those who trust in Him. He manifested a degree of spiritual enlightenment, dominion, and obedience; and through his confidence in God he overcame the boastful belief in material force and sensuality.
