Young student finds right thinking necessary to toil without suffering

ON BEING WITHOUT SIN

[Of Special Interest to Young People]

One Sunday a young man complained in his Sunday School class of a constant feeling of tiredness and dullness. He was tired, he said, because he had to work all day in a draftsman's office and do his diploma studies at night. And yet, he explained, he could not really understand his weariness because he had tried to put his knowledge of Christian Science into practice. Among other things, he had tried to realize the truth of the statement in the Christian Science textbook that hard work may be experienced without suffering; but there had been no apparent result.

The class then turned to the passage he had referred to on page 385 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, which reads (p. 385), "Constant toil, deprivations, exposures, and all untoward conditions, if without sin, can be experienced without suffering." It was seen that in thinking of this he had neglected the words "if without sin."
