MEETING DISAPPOINTMENT AS ITS MASTER

A Naturalist tells of watching an ant carry a piece of straw that must have seemed a big burden to it. The ant came to a crack in the earth too wide to cross. Either by accident or design the straw fell across the crack, and the ant crawled over it to the other side. The moral may be this: the archenemy of progress and happiness is not the burden we may seem to carry, but the failure to use that burden as an opportunity to progress in the service of unfolding good.

Paul said that he took pleasure in trouble, adding, "For when I am weak, then am I strong" (II Cor. 12:10). The weakness of mortal mind, the failure of human events to reward or satisfy our earnest longings, will, if we learn the rules of divine Science, turn us away from the false and will open our vision to possibilities for progress that prove each burden light and the way ahead full of glory.
