"Don't Tolerate— Exterminate"!

While passing through the business section of a city, I noticed a sign advertising an exterminating company: "Don't Tolerate— Exterminate." As I proceeded on my way, I began to ask myself how many times I had agreed to tolerate certain discords and difficulties instead of exterminating them.

I recalled the many months I had tolerated a rash on my hands until I finally got irritated enough to declare the only thing I had been doing with my hands was good and there was no law of punishment for doing good, because God is a loving God and as His child I could not suffer. He is divine Spirit, and man is His perfect expression. Disease is unnatural, untrue, no part of man's real existence. The rash shortly disappeared.
