In "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 249) Mrs. Eddy, our beloved Leader, in writing of "Love" says: "What a word! I am in awe before it. Over what worlds on worlds it hath range and is sovereign! the underived, the incomparable, the infinite All of good, the alone God, is Love." Where such as she stands in awe, it would almost seem as though lesser mortals would hesitate even to approach. And yet how every heart is reaching out to understand Love! How all are really longing to come into its wonderful secret and receive its longed-for blessing!

When Christian Science first touches our lives this understanding appears to be fairly within our grasp, and we begin to talk of it as though its fullness were already attained. Then the test comes! An opportunity to heal instantaneously some inveterate disease is presented. But alas! the healing does not always result. Then we begin to see something of what Mrs. Eddy meant when she said (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 312), "Oh, may the love that is talked, be felt! and so lived, that when weighed in the scale of God we be not found wanting."
