Love Goes Before

Christian Scientists have derived solace and assurance from Mrs. Eddy's words found in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (pp. 149, 150), "Remember, thou canst be brought into no condition, be it ever so severe, where Love has not been before thee and where its tender lesson is not awaiting thee." Realization of the ever-presence of Love and of divine omnipotence has reassured many a quaking heart, and sent many a troubled and faltering one forward refreshed, uplifted, heartened for life's journey.

Fear, discouragement, doubt—archenemies of happiness and well-being—disappear in the presence of the realization that God, the supreme, infinite All, is unchanging Love. Sublime truth! So important to mortals that it is dear above all earthly possessions, the pearl of greatest price! Nothing in the material universe weighs in the balance with this transcendent fact; and this precious truth is to be had for the seeking; it may become the prize of all. None may be shut out from its possession; none may gain of its priceless beneficence to the exclusion of another. Infinite in its capacity to bless, divine Love likewise is incapable of depletion and diminution.
