DOING BY UNDOING

Christian Scientists can rejoice in their knowledge that in reality there is no such thing as a hopeless situation. A young student of this Science who was making an honest effort to understand her real relationship to God was momentarily dismayed at what appeared to be the complexities of life and at the doubts and fears that seemed to have spun a web to immobilize her.

A loving practitioner pointed out to this young woman what Mary Baker Eddy says in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 240): "In trying to undo the errors of sense one must pay fully and fairly the utmost farthing, until all error is finally brought into subjection to Truth. The divine method of paying sin's wages involves unwinding one's snarls, and learning from experience how to divide between sense and Soul." Greatly encouraged by this explanation, the young woman began to see that she had before her not hindrances but opportunities.
