Using Our Talents

[Of Special Interest to Young Men and Women]

A college classroom may appear to the student to be a room of challenges. Many times a course of study will demand the use of talents previously dormant in one's experience.

When an assignment is made requiring these unused talents or abilities, the student may unthinkingly respond, "This is too difficult for me," or, "This is not in my field." However, Christian Science teaches us never to be apprehensive of the new and untried.

In Science and Health, Mrs. Eddy tells us (p. 519), "Nothing can be novel to eternal Mind, the author of all things, who from all eternity knoweth His own ideas." Thus it becomes the task of each one of us to let spiritual truth, the Word of God, unfold in his consciousness. The nature of divine Truth becomes better known to one the more one puts it into practice. The constantly developing ideas of Mind are inexhaustible.
