"Because of the people"

The Christian Scientist who has often proved the power of God to heal sickness, sin, or some other form of discord, may withhold an audible expression of gratitude at a Wednesday evening meeting because a present problem, perhaps of long standing, remains unsolved. The suggestion may come to one that he ought to wait until this difficulty has been overcome, when he can speak of the efficacy of Christian Science with more assurance. The argument may say, "You had better waith and be sure you are going to be healed of this before you give your testimony."

Every student of Christian Science should know that such a thought could not emanate from the divine Mind; he should at once recognize it as suggestion masquerading in the garment of wisdom, but without truth or intelligence. However dark one's present outlook may seem to be, there is always much for which to be grateful. To have proved in a single instance the power of Truth over error is cause for ever-present gratitude.
