Sometimes students of Christian Science have been heard to say, "I wish I had more time to give to the study and practice of Christian Science." This is a very worthwhile wish, of course, and commendable; but no matter what our human circumstance or vocation may be, we should never discount the value of the time we all have in which to show our consecration to Christ.

Going about our daily business, we can utilize our understanding of Christ, Truth, and practice Christian Science in all our affairs, whether it be in the home, in the office, in school, or on vacation. We can always be alert to bear witness to Truth. When we do so, we are practicing Christian Science. We cannot know how far-reaching and beneficial our work may be.

The joyous opportunity of putting into practice the truths we are learning in our daily study of the Lesson-Sermons as outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly, with references from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, does not necessitate extra time or an office in which to practice Science. In every waking hour thoughts continually present themselves, and we must choose whether we shall bear witness to God's true, spiritual creation or whether we shall accept the material fable.
