Excerpt from Christian Science Journal, Vol. 12: April, 1894
Take therefore no thought for the morrow for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.
It was a violation of this law, that caused the two Marys to ask before reaching the sepulchre, Who shall roll us away the stone? But when they reached the sepulchre, behold the stone was already rolled away.
The ridiculous work of impatience is illustrated in the following picture: A man is seen walking along, and although the way is level and smooth, yet he steps as if reaching for something above the ground. You inquire as to his purpose in doing this, and he replies, I am trying to climb the hill you see in the distance.
Patience might be defined as contentment, or long suffer ing in the midst of toil, or adversity. Jesus said, In your patience possess ye your souls (sense of Truth.) The demonstration of Christian Science is to have our thought so filled with love as to dispel all else. The impa tient are ever asking for greater benefits, while they fail to acknowledge benefits already received. This doubting and ungrateful condition of thought, shuts out the light of Truth, and their troubles are not healed. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father. Which is 111 heaven.
