Availability of Good

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (pp. 12, 13) we find these words: "In divine Science, where prayers are mental, all may avail themselves of God as 'a very present help in trouble.' Love is impartial and universal in its adaptation and bestowals. It is the open found which cries, 'Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters.'" Christian Science has brought to the world an understanding of God, good, that is demonstrable and applicable to every human need. It is available at all times and under all circumstances. It heals all our diseases, replaces our beliefs of poverty with a fuller understanding of Truth, opens the prison doors to those who are in bondage to fear and false beliefs. It contains the solution to every human problem.

There was a lovely woman—the mother of two daughters—whose reflection of love was redolent with beauty. The elder daughter was quick to perceive this in early childhood, and through the years availed herself of the richness and joy of this companionship. The younger daughter took it as a matter of course, and though not altogether unmindful of her mother's beautiful nature and character, nevertheless made no particular effort to enrich her own nature through this association. In later years, however, her indifference was dispelled and she became more cognizant of the availability and beauty of her mother's love. She also saw that, irrespective of her former attitude, this love had been expressed toward her all the time.
