Safe and fearless

From the August 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Error is a coward before Truth,” writes Mary Baker Eddy in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 368).

This statement makes me think of a time when my husband and I acquired a large rabbit that needed a home. We also had a large black cat, who thought he was so fierce and brave that he could frighten and chase an equally fierce local dog—something he did successfully at every opportunity. 

Well, we initially put this bunny in her hutch in the middle of the garden, and when the cat caught sight of her, he sat and watched her, probably thinking that this was going to be his dinner. He did catch wild rabbits. However, when we opened the hutch, the rabbit made a beeline for the cat and playfully nipped him, which sent the cat packing. He never went near the rabbit again. When confronted by the fearless rabbit, this “fierce” cat was a coward and ran away.
