Permanency of Good

The importance of understanding the true nature of good cannot be overestimated, and Christian Science is today revealing, as no humanly evolved theory could ever reveal, the spiritual nature of good. Not a few believe that good is inconstant, variable, fluctuating, and difficult to obtain; and many there are who seem to be convinced that every phase of good is decidedly limited. Others entertain the mistaken belief that some individuals are especially favored, and that for some unknown reason they possess more of good than it is possible for others, supposedly less favored, to attain.

That God is the only source of good is definitely established in the Bible, the Apostle James stating this fact in the words, "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." God is unchanging good, and all that emanates from God is necessarily permanent, invariable, abundant, and omnipresent. God has no favorite sons, and is never partial in His bestowals. Justice, equality, and abundance characterize all the manifestations of divine Love, God. Christ Jesus clearly understood and positively stated the impartiality of God, for in that practical digest of matchless Christian teaching called the Sermon on the Mount, we read, "He maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust."
