We cannot read carefully the Scriptures without observing...

From the December 1896 issue of The Christian Science Journal

We cannot read carefully the Scriptures without observing that success and prosperity (and by this we mean the true sense of success and prosperity) are invariably coupled with conditions. This has been emphasized over and over again in our Bible lessons. The following text will perhaps as broadly illustrate this thought as any one we could cite:—

"If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in His sight, and wilt give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes. I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians; for I am the Lord that healeth thee."

The word "disease" here may be taken in its broadest signification. Dis-ease means not alone sickness and pain in the physical sense, but any form of discord, disaster, or inharmony. And the word "healeth" may be taken in its broadest sense also, the healing which means wholeness, or harmony in all things or respects.
