The Law of God

When the psalmist exclaimed in joyful exultation, "O how love I thy law!" he immediately went on to say, "It is my meditation all the day." It is a truism that what one loves he is sure to meditate upon. It would be impossible not to desire to dwell with that which is lovely. To gain even a glimpse of the infinite lovableness of God's law is to bring to the human sense of it a vision of its beauty and desirability which the ordinary theological viewpoint has never presented.

In "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 206) Mrs. Eddy speaks of God as "the active, all-wise, law-creating, law-disciplining, law-abiding Principle, God." This immediately unfolds an understanding of God and His law, which was never given to humanity until in Christian Science the term Principle was used to define God. This does not take away the perception of God as a living God, but on the contrary it shows Him more intelligently than ever before as the loving Father-Mother, divine Mind, conscious of each need of every child and constantly supplying it through His omniactive, omnipresent law of good. Indeed, in accordance with this law every need of every child must originate in Principle, and the law which governs the originating of the need, must also govern its supply.
