Commitment

One of the sweetest statements that can be made to us at the completion of a task is “Well done!” It recognizes that we have stuck with our work, kept our eye on the goal, and valued the assignment enough to see it finished. We feel the satisfaction commensurate with having fulfilled our commitment. Sometimes this has taken courage and persistence. In our daily walk, we discover the value of humble commitment to be Christlike. Mrs. Eddy says in Science and Health, “If Truth is overcoming error in your daily walk and conversation, you can finally say, “I have fought a good fight… I have kept the faith,” because you are a better man.” (SH 21:1-4) This is a gradual process, improved each day. We can witness to an increasing partnership with commitment and its rewards during September. The Reading Room thanks you for your commitment to good.
