Persistence

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    A quick thought from the daily Watch (Link here) – no matter how good our understanding, our daily or constant efforts are important. As noted from the Watch – are we leaning on God?

    How true! I remember having to learn the multiplication table consistently and being tested several times until they became “my own,” something a part of me. And even then it is the consistent use of them and persistent knowing of them that makes me keenly aware of what they are and therefore cannot be fooled by their opposite. I find that is why persistence, consistency are emphasized here in this Church.

    An article 3 C’s and E by Doris Evans has always been helpful with persistence and expectation. Here is the link: https://articles.plainfieldcs.com/doris-w-evans/three-cs-and-an-e/

    The teaching through Christian Science has taught me to ask: How can I make these Truths the foundation of how I live? With understanding persistence they become how I think and hence how I live.

    Thank you for posting the link to Mrs. Evans article–it is very helpful, and easy to remember with the catchy title!
