Our Remedy

One of the best loved and most frequently quoted sentences in our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, is found on page 494, and reads as follows: "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need." Sometimes when a problem does not appear to be solved as quickly as we desire, we are tempted to doubt this promise, or at least to wonder why divine Love does not meet our need more readily, forgetting that a rule must be faithfully applied in order to obtain the promised result. Are we, then, applying the rule of divine Love?

In the old days, before Christian Science had enlightened our thinking, when the doctor gave us a bottle of medicine we were very particular to read the instructions on the label and follow them most carefully. Sometimes we even asked those in the home to remind us of them, so eager were we to do our part correctly. Now, in Christian Science, we have found the true remedy for every ill. This remedy is the understanding of divine Love; and we are told in Science and Health (p. 17) that "Love is reflected in love."
