136 — WATCH lest you feel that you must take every case that comes to you. A demand for help is also a demand upon you to reflect divine wisdom to know whether the patient is ready to be helped. It may do harm to take a patient who is not ready, since, if he fails to receive the help, he may form an opinion detrimental to his acceptance of Science, when the day comes that he is ready for it. A practitioner who fails to use each new patient as an opportunity to demonstrate divine wisdom, is neglecting an opportunity essential to spiritual growth.
