Gladness and Giving

After fifty months of war on the part of the Allies in Europe and nineteen months for our American boys, we see with great rejoicing and thanksgiving our Father's hand leading us up and on into a world governed by justice and gladdened by peace. Our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 494), "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need." Through study of the Bible and her writings, also the Christian Science periodicals, including the Monitor, we have been taught to know God better, and to help through right thinking and giving, both mentally and materially, thus doing our part to bring this great world struggle to an end.

Let us not forget that we are in a sense only beginning to work for the establishment of God's kingdom, and that our efforts must be untiring and sincere in order to bring enduring peace to the world. God's love is universal, and so our love should extend throughout all the world and be manifested in giving freely to supply the needs of the unfortunate people brought to want through the world war. Let us remember that "God loveth a cheerful giver." To give willingly means much, for if we give with a willing heart we rejoice; and all through the Bible we are told to rejoice and are shown the results of rejoicing.

We'd love to hear from you!
