A Good Suggestion

A few years ago a sister in Science called my attention to the many "fear nots" of the Bible. Acting upon the suggestion I have from time to time looked up the fear nots, be not discouraged, be not dismayed, and whatever encourages us to look to a power outside of our own selves. The blessing that has come to me has been very marked. The author of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" p. 373, says very truly, "The fear of disease and the love of sin are the springs of man's enslavement." And again, "Sin is the foundation of sickness" (Science and Health, p. 391). The careful observer is convinced that these statements are quite true, hence the power of Love's word to unclasp the fetters that bind humanity.

And thus it is, and will be, when we look into the "fear nots" of the Bible; by constant study, meek and lowly appreciation, these mighty truths will become to us a consciousness that will enable us to meet and destroy every seeming condition that is unlike Good.

"Thy word is Truth," and Truth is mighty to remove mountains. "If God be for us, who can be against us?"
