A deep yearning for good is easily seen across the world. It is expressed in wanting things such as continual, purposeful work; happy relationships; a home; adequate income; and health. These are all things people want not only for themselves, but also for their children and their communities. But the path to experiencing that goodness is not always clear.
Christian Science, based on the teachings of the Bible, can help us see further than limitations pressing in on us. This brighter view is gained through expanding our understanding of God as endless Love, always caring for its creation. As we bring into focus a clearer concept of God, we will have the assurance found in Proverbs, “Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness” (8:18).
We can’t always know what’s around the corner. Nevertheless, the more we accept the rock-solid security of God’s goodness, the more confident we are when stepping forward. The concept of God articulated by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, reveals that Love is divine Principle, the source of all good. The yearning for good is not in vain when we look at the scope of God as Love and Principle and realize the spiritual fact that divine Principle and Love actually underpin and provide only good for each of us.
