THE VALUE OF THOROUGHNESS

"Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might," exhorted the Preacher (Eccl. 9:10), viewing the fleeting efforts of human endeavor and their unsatisfactory and unsatisfying results. He had earlier discerned the spiritual fact that "whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it" (Eccl. 3: 14). The standard of indestructibility and continuity had been revealed, and lie perceived that only as the human concept patterns the divine can real or lasting success be attained.

In the line of spiritual attainment, accuracy and exactitude of thought are as indispensable to success as they are, for example, to the musician or the mathematician. The achievement of an ideal of excellence is greatly dependent upon the exercise of promptness, steadfastness, and diligence, upon the surmounting of obstacles in individual character, human relationships, and environment generally.
