20 — WATCH lest you endeavor so watchfully to keep out your enemies, that you keep out your friends, or God’s spiritual ideas. This watching point covers the possibility of one striving so hard to keep what one conceives as error out of an article he might be writing for our periodicals, that he crushes out all spontaneity and inspiration. The error is one of fear. The antidote is to realize that if he seeks to impersonalize good, so that he sees God writing the article through him, this demonstration will exclude error in both cause and effect.
