Challenging indifference: Caring for humanity

From the January 2019 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Some months ago while reading The Christian Science Monitor Daily, I asked myself why I just briefly perused some articles and thoroughly read others. Realizing that some were apparently not as meaningful to me, I then wondered if that meant I was being indifferent to subjects that needed dedicated prayer and was “picking and choosing” what to pray about. 

Christian Science, having as its foundation the inspired Word of the Bible, teaches that any question we have can be answered through a continually growing spiritual understanding of God. It’s not merely a human effort of once in a while reading about or thinking good thoughts. It is listening to and mentally staying with the spiritual intuition that helps us know God, divine Spirit, as our—and everyone’s—actual, only Life. 

God gives each of us the ability to perceive that our true relation to Him, who is infinite Love, is one of inseparability. Divine, holy Love is the one source from which all true creation is derived. There is nothing unimportant in this creation. As the complete spiritual expression of that Love, we are valued and capable of valuing others. Reasoning from this standpoint, we realize that there is no indifference in Love’s care and in our inherent caring nature as God’s reflection.
