"There is always more of love"

"What would you do if you gave away all your love?" a small boy asked his Christian Science Sunday School teacher. She replied: "How could I give away all my love, when divine Love is infinite? There is always more of love at hand, for God is Love, and God is here." Later in the week the boy asked his grandmother, a Christian Science practitioner, "What would you do if you gave away all your love?" She answered, "I should ask God for more love, and He would give it to me." "Just what my Sunday school teacher said," the boy told her with deep satisfaction. Subsequently, discussing the incident, teacher and practitioner agreed that this simple yet profound question had brought to each of them a renewed appreciation of the unlimited abundance of divine Love.

Who has not known times when kindness, patience, yes, and love, seemed exhausted by the conduct of another; when animosity brought discomfort, or personal attachment dissolved in tears; when, in short, the human emotion that parades itself as love was found totally inadequate to meet the moral and spiritual demands of the occasion? Confronted by such adverse circumstances, fortunate is the individual who has learned to turn for his supply to the infinite source of love, even to divine Love. Such turning is instantaneously rewarded. Mrs. Eddy gives us this assurance (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 494): "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need."
