Perseverance in Truth

In Science and Health we read Mrs. Eddy's words: "In the figurative transmission from the divine thought to the human, diligence, promptness, and perseverance are likened to 'the cattle upon a thousand hills.' They carry the baggage of stern resolve, and keep pace with highest purpose." Science and Health, p. 514;

When we desire to see immediate fruitage from our efforts to accomplish worthwhile results, or when a problem does not yield at once to our earnest affirmations of truth and denials of error, it is helpful to remember that many notable people of Bible times in the face of serious opposition and even danger had to develop "stern resolve" and the hardy qualities that "keep pace with highest purpose." Doing this enabled them to triumph. Studying Biblical accounts of their experiences teaches us that the more self-discipline one demonstrates, the more God's government becomes apparent in every aspect of his life.
