Quote quandary

I’ve always loved copying down metaphysical quotes and inspiring ideas on scraps of paper or in little journals. But how does that inspiration help me or anyone else if all I do is shut it up in books or bury it in the recesses of a drawer or bookbag?

As a lifelong student of Christian Science, I’ve always known that Mary Baker Eddy’s words were meant to be lived and shared. And as I learn more about the discoverer and founder of Christian Science from biographies and her own writings, I’m gaining a better understanding of her insistence that her faith be practical.

The problem I’ve found myself running into lately is that I don’t always feel like I have a good enough grasp of an inspirational idea to turn to it for healing. And if I haven’t mastered a metaphysical concept, how could I possibly share it with someone else?
