DEMONSTRATING DAY AS DIVINE IDEA

Mary Baker Eddy , acting under divine inspiration, has set out certain duties to be performed daily by Christian Scientists. In Article VIII of the Manual of The Mother Church she gives three of these. Section I requires daily watchfulness and prayer for delivery from evil and evil thinking. Section 4 gives a daily prayer for the establishment of God's kingdom and enrichment of human affections. Section 6 states, "It shall be the duty of every member of this Church to defend himself daily against aggressive mental suggestion, and not be made to forget nor to neglect his duty to God, to his Leader, and to mankind."

Christian Scientists recognize these duties as designed to assist them in carrying out more effectively the healing and regenerative ministry of Christ, Truth. They gladly accept the useful discipline of performing them daily. But spiritual unfoldment is not regulated by clock and calendar. Although the orderly performance of these duties daily is of practical utility, it is by no means the whole of them.
