From the August 1963 issue of The Christian Science Journal

A Great gladness, a great confidence in and expectancy of good, is felt when one learns through Christian Science that the divine Principle that makes and governs the universe and man is Love, Love that is immeasurably good, infinitely kind, infinitely powerful, infinitely wise, and everywhere present. Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health (p. 6): '"God is Love.' More than this we cannot ask, higher we cannot look, farther we cannot go."

The highest sense we can entertain of God is the understanding of Him as divine Love. The highest sense we can entertain of man is the knowledge of him as the image of Love. And the highest sense of God's creation is the appreciation of it as the expression of Love. The Bible constantly emphasizes God's loving-kindness, His outpouring of good to all. It also states that God creates man in His own image and likeness. Out of its own impelling goodness, Love inspires every expression of good.

Moses understood God's loving care, for he said to his people (Deut. 7:7-15): "The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: but because the Lord loved you . . . hath the Lord . . . redeemed you. . . . And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee. . . . And the Lord will take away from thee all sickness."
