The Rule of Patience

The textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, is full of rules for demonstrating this Science. All are important. One of them is the rule of patience. Mrs. Eddy states it thus: "Wait patiently for divine Love to move upon the waters of mortal mind, and form the perfect concept. Patience must 'have her perfect work.' " Science and Health, p. 454;

The Bible also sets forth the rule of patience in many places. James states it thus: "My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing." James 1:2-4; Christ Jesus was a model of infinite patience.
