ACTING IN THE LIVING PRESENT

Most people have heard and profited from the ancient proverb, "Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today." This is good advice for the Christian Scientist, for he must learn the rule of un-delayed activity, of instant obedience to God's laws. And Christian Science shows how this can be effectively accomplished.

Referring to the practice of alertness to one's present responsibilities and opportunities, Mary Baker Eddy writes (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 12): "Whatever needs to be done which cannot be done now, God prepares the way for doing; while that which can be done now, but is not, increases our indebtedness to God. Faith in divine Love supplies the ever-present help and now, and gives the power to 'act in the living present.' "
