Stepping-stones to Infinite Progress

Do you measure progress by a promotion, or better grades in school, or a larger house? These may be the evidence of progress. But we may find the good to be transient unless it is the consequence of spiritual growth. Christian Science shows us how to progress— spiritually and permanently.

Progress, we soon discover, is not just being promoted or owning more things. It is being born of Spirit. Waking to the magnitude of God's spiritual creation and finding man in His image—these are the necessary stepping-stones.

Christian Science reveals God as All-in-all, and man as the full expression of all that God is. So if we feel we have to get something in order to progress, aren't we arguing there is something out there that we need—something that circumstance or person may or may not grant us? Acquisition has nothing to do with spiritual progress, which is an unfolding understanding of what God has already bestowed upon you and me, His beloved offspring.
