Security in Divine Law

Recently a student of Christian Science gained a very helpful lesson while standing in a safety zone, waiting for a streetcar. Although automobiles were rushing by, he felt secure when walking to and fro in that limited safety zone because he was protected by the traffic law. This experience, it seems, is somewhat analogous to that of a student who is sincerely endeavoring to practice Christian Science, for the understanding of Truth gives him assurance of safety through obedience to divine law while he is passing through the maze of human experiences.

The desire for spiritual thinking and living brings one naturally under the protection of the law of Spirit. We have the Psalmist's assurance, "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." Just as one feels safe while obeying the traffic rules by standing within the safety zone as he waits for a streetcar, so the student in Christian Science feels secure when he remains steadfast in what might metaphorically be called the safety zone of divine law while gaining a better understanding of Deity.
