Pep Pills or Divine Energy?

Different people take different steps to combat fatigue. In today's drug-oriented culture a large number of persons are relying upon artificial stimulants such as pep pills to carry them through a time of little or no rest. These may seem to meet one's immediate need for staying power. However, they may also have detrimental effects, and they condition one to depend habitually on matter, which is unreliable.

There is a much better way to wipe out weariness, a way always available and effective. Christian Science shows that the Almighty doesn't need a drug to help Him help you. As this religion and way of life teaches, not matter but God, infinite Mind, is the source of energy and vitality.

In conformance with the account of spiritual creation found in the first chapter of the Bible, Christian Science shows man to be the likeness of Spirit, the very expression of God's being. Strength, alertness, and dominion are divine qualities, which the real man reflects without interruption. In Isaiah we read: "Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary?" Isa. 40:28; Man's true, divine source of energy never wears out.
