Sharing at a seminary
At a comparative religion class at a seminary, a colleague and I met with the class to discuss Christian Science. The colleague told of a wonderful healing that came about through prayer, and we talked about God being good, and, therefore, by definition, the source of all genuine good that we experience in our lives.
A seminary student then told of an instance when she felt her life was saved because a doctor was present to deal with an emergency. She asked how that fit in with what we had shared. Something that I had not previously considered came to my thought, and I said, “When anything genuinely good occurs, it is important to be grateful to God, who is the source of all good. So, it is important and wonderful for you to be grateful for the good you experienced that day. And if no doctor had been present, you can be just as confident that God is always meeting your need.”
