Light in Our Dwellings

In spite of darkness so thick that it was felt for three days throughout Egypt, the land of bondage to false conditions, the Israelites, as we are told in Exodus, "had light in their dwellings." In Science and Health Mrs. Eddy speaks of the children of Israel as "those, who through earnest striving followed his [Jacob's] demonstration of the power of Spirit over the material senses;" and again she refers to them as "governed by divine Science" (pp.309,583). Thus all who are striving to be governed in every activity by the Principle of Christian Science and to prove the power of Spirit over the testimony of the material senses, should let their light shine—should be able to show to the whole world that they too have light in their dwellings.

Christian Science is proving that many who have been in bondage to discord in their households, to petty jealousies, limitations, disorderliness in details, can receive such divine illumination and guidance as to dispel all these beclouding faults. The light of God's loving-kindness replaces any senses of morbid depression, irritation, or selfishness, with the expression of intelligence, the right idea of activity, wholly unselfed endeavor. When any human desire turns toward the light of Truth as revealed in Christian Science, the manifestation sooner or later is freedom from friction and ability to work with quiet rejoicing. Light and joy are the gift of God to all who sincerely seek the essential and reject the non-essential.
