Learning love is learning to understand God, for "God is love." In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy says (p. 84), "All we correctly know of Spirit comes from God, divine Principle, and is learned through Christ and Christian Science," and on page 203 she says, "If God were understood instead of being merely believed, this understanding would establish health." I have seen this demonstrated in my family many times. One case I would like to mention. One of our children, a little boy, had whooping cough, measles, and penumonia at the same time. The child's father had no hope for him and accordingly informed our neighbors and friends that the child could not live until night, but through the understanding of God as Love, as Mrs. Eddy has taught in Christian Science, health was restored and on the day he was thought to be dying he sat up in bed and asked for something to eat.

I am most grateful to Mrs. Eddy for this beautiful truth, which teaches us what divine Love is.
