Anticipation of Good

Innumerable reasons for gratitude arise daily for one who seeks to mold his life in accord with Christian Science teaching. The Christian Scientist rejoicingly anticipates good at each step of his journey from sense to Soul. Any doubt that may have obtained during his first halting steps out of darkness into light is dissipated as one's understanding of the nature of good grows clearer through repeated demonstrations of its availability and ever-presence.

The shadow of fear spreads itself across material thought. Mankind strains fearful eyes striving to glimpse what the future holds in store for it. Sin, disease, and death appear to be concomitants of daily life. But how profoundly grateful Christian Scientists are for the understanding that the material world and all its manifestations are but dream shadows; how thankful they are to know that "all things work together for good to them that love God"! One need not anticipate evil, because good is ever present and all-powerful. Nothing is "too good to be true," since God, good, alone is true.
