Learning to Lean on God

"To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings." These words, comprising the opening sentence on page vii of the Preface to the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, are a source of great comfort to students of Christian Science.

To one who had read and repeated this statement many times, always with a limited view of its significance, there came a time when a mere repetition of the words no longer satisfied; for "leaning on the sustaining infinite," as he was wont to do in the limited application of his understanding, did not bring him the needed comfort and support. However, through a more thorough analysis of the statement, he found that the word "leaning," interpreted in its fullest sense, designated the way to partake of the promised blessings.
