"The right thinker and worker"

Progress and apathy cannot exist together. Progress requires ardent effort. In her Message to The Mother Church for 1900 Mrs. Eddy says: "The song of Christian Science is, 'Work—work—work—watch and pray.' The close observer reports three types of human nature—the right thinker and worker, the idler, and the intermediate." '00., p. 2; And on the same page she says: "The intermediate worker works at times. He says: 'It is my duty to take some time for myself; however, I believe in working when it is convenient.' Well, all that is good. But what of the fruits of your labors? And he answers: 'I am not so successful as I could wish, but I work hard enough to be so.'"

No sincere student of Christian Science can afford to be either an "idler" or an "intermediate worker." We are taught in Christian Science that man, created in the image and likeness of God, enjoys by reflection all the qualities of his Maker. All the intelligence and wisdom of divine Mind, all the senses and perception of Soul, all the activity of Life, all the substance of Spirit, all the integrity of Truth, all the inspiration of Love, all the order and law of Principle are available to us.
