Spiritual Riches

There is great treasure in persistent, systematic study of the Bible and Mrs. Eddy's writings. We can build up our understanding of God and His spiritual universe in this way, provided we always remember that study, not reading only, is our goal. While we may start in the "reading" class, we must not stay there, else our reading will bring us little understanding. We must want to advance into the "studying" class, where we find richer nourishment for the understanding. Even the more advanced student of Christian Science learns to watch that he doesn't lapse into reading the letter without grasping the spirit.

I have always been grateful for the devoted work of my Christian Science Sunday School teachers. They taught me many lessons that did not come to fruition until years later and, in fact, are still unfolding in my thought. One of these was the importance of daily study of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. The teacher pointed out that one need read only two pages each day to accomplish a complete reading of it each year!
