"Who touched me?"

When Jesus was on his way to heal the daughter of the ruler of the synagogue, a great crowd followed him, pressing close upon him. His disciples were surprised to have him ask, "Who touched me?" But Jesus had felt the thought that had reached out to the Christ, Truth, to be healed; and he called it out from the multitude.

Before we knew of the teachings of Christian Science, we believed that our thoughts were our own, to do with as we liked. We allowed them to wander in any direction, to include any imagination or fancy, or to rest upon anyone without penalty or even detection. Then we learned, as Christian Science teaches, that thoughts manifest themselves in human affairs, and that we are as responsible for wrong thinking as for wrong doing. We began to realize that our surroundings and our very world are the product of thought. Our next step was to learn how to govern the thoughts that had been allowed to run riot.
