BEWARE THE LITTLE FOXES!

Occasionally a Christian Science student will voice discouragement over inability to demonstrate the truth of being in a given instance. He is apt to find it difficult to see why persistent metaphysical work has failed to achieve the desired results.

A pointed answer to such a question is found in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 149): "The rule and its perfection of operation never vary in Science. If you fail to succeed in any case, it is because you have not demonstrated the life of Christ, Truth, more in your own life,—because you have not obeyed the rule and proved the Principle of divine Science." And how is the Christ to be demonstrated? The same author gives an indication in her "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 166): "This spiritual idea, or Christ, entered into the minutiæ of the life of the personal Jesus. It made him an honest man, a good carpenter, and a good man, before it could make him the glorified."
