"As also I am known"

Divine Love was glimpsed by Paul when he declared that without "charity," that is, without love, he was "nothing." Evidently he yearned for a deeper sense of love. In the same chapter he describes the beautifying, controlling influence of divine Love in relation to human character and deportment. Not content with seeing "through a glass, darkly," and knowing "in part," but pressing on to perfect knowledge, "then," he said, "shall I know even as also I am known."

Obviously, divine Love knows its own image as living, loving, healthful, pure, as consciously obedient to divine Principle. Instead, therefore, of accepting the initial error or misrepresentation of man called a mortal, and proceeding in sequence to work our way mentally out of this false premise, we should mentally reject all erroneous evidence and resolutely hold our thought to God's omniscience. Only as we steadfastly reflect omniscient good, and so enrich our consciousness, can we lay off old handicaps. Only so can we discern true manhood and womanhood and rejoice in Love's impartial munificence.
