When someone brings a bright light into a dimly lighted room the faces of the people in that room may be more clearly seen. Beautiful expressions appear more beautiful. The joy reflected in someone's face becomes more apparent, but hard lines and deceitful looks lose their disguise and repel where they may have attracted before. All do not appreciate the added light. We read in John (3:19), "This is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil."

One who truly succeeds in the business of being a Christian Scientist takes the light of Truth wherever he goes. He helps others who are earnest students of Christian Science to find what they are seeking. The thought which is less than love for the one who succeeds is working for the wrong thing. If a Christian Science healing shows skill in the practice of the law of Truth, it also shows the God-given capacity of every individual to demonstrate this law.
