386 — WATCH lest you fail to exercise the power of Mind in your own behalf, as Science and Health teaches. If a man has a gun and yet fails to use it against an approaching enemy, the gun is of little use. Or if his enemy is approaching down a road that is mined, and he need only push a button to blow up the road and the enemy, too, why should he feel depressed or fearful?
Christian Science is our adequate weapon for all error and will always prevail, since good overcomes evil; but we must watch lest we be cheated out of its benefits, because the whisperings of animal magnetism tempt us to disbelieve in our ability to apply it.
