Spiritual Short

Angels and ever-present good

From the May 2020 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When I was about eight years old, I was lying on my mom’s bed watching her iron. I asked myself, “Why should I be good?” Quickly the thought came, “Because it is right to be good!” I immediately accepted that idea. 

Later, after becoming acquainted with Christian Science, I learned that idea was an “angel thought” from God—a spiritual intuition showing me my natural goodness.

God’s angels are always with us; they uplift us and guide us rightly, whether we are working to solve a math problem, compete well in sports, or interact harmoniously with others. Angels show us how to be kind, insightful, humble, confident, and more.
