Forgive

The writer has often meditated on the sacred meaning of the words, "Forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us," which Luke tells us Jesus gave to his disciples upon their request that he teach them how to pray. Considering the word "forgive," we find one meaning of it to be "cancel" or "obliterate."

In the old days, before the Science of Christianity gave him the necessary enlightenment, one seeker for Truth found that this forgiving or canceling brought with it the overwhelming and then apparently impossible task of carrying out the Golden Rule. It was not until the way, as revealed in Christian Science by our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, was practically and scientifically understood, that his attempt to forgive was successful, and he saw that this truly forgiving spirit could be brought into line with the turmoil of daily affairs, as Jesus intended.
