WHY SHOULD WE WAIT?

"Wait on the Lord," the Psalmist insists (Ps. 27:14); but who would really choose to wait? In most of us the very word wait arouses a feeling of frustration. Since childhood we have associated "wait" with some desirable thing postponed. Could God's law require the postponement of good or anything connected with it? What does true waiting mean?

A search in the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy shows that there is much more involved in waiting than most people realize. Consider, for example, the startling sentence in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 268), "Through patience we must possess the sense of Truth; and Truth is used to waiting." This shows the profound meaning that Mrs. Eddy gave to the word.
