Angels

At a time of widespread fear and economic distress, how comforting and assuring it is to realize and utilize the true meaning of the word "angels," defined, in part, by Mary Baker Eddy, Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, on page 581 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" as "God's thoughts passing to man; spiritual intuitions, pure and perfect." Comprehension of the practical value of this definition may be greatly enhanced by a study of the words of the same author as found in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 307): "God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies."

It is here apparent that there is a certain prerequisite to the reception of that which is regarded as necessary to human existence. Careful consideration of the nature of God reveals the fact that He recognizes only that which is the reflection of Himself, Spirit, for in reality nothing else exists. Therefore, it is futile to expect God to be cognizant of human lack and to supply matter in alleviation thereof. God is always pouring forth, impartially and universally, an infinite abundance of spiritual good. It follows, then, that to receive this bestowal human consciousness must be conformed to spiritual truth. It must be purified, so as let God's reflection appear.
