From the May 1937 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Through his human experience as shepherd boy, fugitive, and king, David learned to praise God and acknowledge His infinite power. In the thirty-fourth Psalm he sang, "O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together."

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 194), "The lens of Science magnifies the divine power to human sight; and we then see the supremacy of Spirit and the nothingness of matter." Again, in her Message to The Mother Church for 1901 (p. 12) she says, "The lens of Science magnifies the divine power to human sight; and we then see the allness of Spirit, therefore the nothingness of matter." The repetition of this counsel by our Leader invites earnest consideration of its meaning.

Through Christian Science we learn that spiritual illumination is God-bestowed and divinely directed. Today, many are awakening to the advantage to be gained by discerning truth through spiritual sense, for thereby one acquires a clearness of perception and an accuracy of impression far in advance of any former ability. "The lens of Science" is an indispensable aid in gaining a right apprehension of that which actually exists.
