"O Taste and See that the Lord is Good."

The life of the Psalmist in many respects was similar to that of the Christian Scientist. The Psalmist not only praised the Lord continually, but his heart went out to others, and he wanted them to share with him the joys of a practical truth, and he cried out to them, "O taste and see that the Lord is good."

He had tried the pleasures of the world; he had indulged in many forms of sin, and knew how deceptive they were. He had wandered from God; he had shared the advantages of riches; he had ascended the ladder of fame to its heights; he had walked about in prominence and moved in splendor, and in the face of such varied experiences he exclaimed, "O taste and see that the Lord is good." Those of us who are trying to live this practical truth as taught in Christian Science, have shared the seeming pleasures of sense; have wandered about in the wilderness of sin and disappointment; have shared the guidance of other churches; have read God's word prayerfully; but could not apply His promises in daily life till the searchlight of the "Key to the Scriptures" was thrown upon its pages. With the help of this little book, the promises of God are unfolded to us, "big with blessings," and we say to our neighbors, "O taste and see that the Lord is good."
