Practice makes perfect. This familiar proverb embodies one of the great laws of human nature and – being a law – it is never under any circumstances broken.
There is simply no achievement without practice and the more practice, provided it is done intelligently, the greater will the proficiency be and the sooner will it be attained. It is true in every conceivable branch of human endeavor. Practice is the price of proficiency.
In metaphysics the effects of this law are particularly striking. Thought control is entirely a matter of intelligent practice. And true religion may well b e summed up as the Practice of the Presence of God.
…be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only… (James 1:22)
