The Motherhood of God

One of the blessings that follows the study and demonstration of Christian Science is the continual unfoldment, expansion, and elevation of our thought of God. Recently the study of the Lesson-Sermon brought to me a sense of the motherhood of God that has been very comforting and helpful to me, and I wish to share it with others.

I was brought up to think of God only as Father, and my conception of Him included those attributes alone which I ascribed to the ideal Father, including intelligence, wisdom, justice, power. In the Bible and elsewhere all reference to God is in the masculine gender, and largely through this fact, as well as on account of early training, we lose sight of God as Mother.
