Thriving in Adversity

Trials experienced in overcoming the self-deceptions of mortal existence should spur us on to redoubled efforts. The Psalmist declared, "Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word." Ps. 119:67; And St. Paul stated, "We glory in tribulations." Rom. 5:3;

How reassuring also are these words of Mrs. Eddy: "Like the verdure and evergreen that flourish when trampled upon, the Christian Scientist thrives in adversity; his is a life-lease of hope, home, heaven; his idea is nearing the Way, the Truth, and the Life, when misrepresented, belied, and trodden upon." The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 139; Then she adds, "Justice, honesty, cannot be adjured; their vitality involves Life,—calm, irresistible, eternal."
