"Fret not thyself"
David, the "sweet singer of Israel," begins one of his most beautiful Psalms with the reassuring admonition, "Fret not thyself because of evildoers." Through the centuries these words have undoubtedly been of good comfort to many troubled hearts. Yet, unless one can know some good reason why it is essential to be untroubled over the workings of evil and of evildoers, this admonition may go unheeded, as being impracticable of fulfillment. We see all around us certain injustices and other evils needing correction. How, then, can one remain undisturbed? Is it right to sit quiet, as it were—to be complacent or indifferent in regard to these evils and evildoers?
Consider briefly some reasons, from the standpoint of Christian Science, why one should not "fret."
This Science stresses the allness of God. It teaches that God is Spirit, and that man is spiritual, made in His image and likeness; hence perfect, since God is perfect. The first chapter of Genesis reveals the above facts, and further states that God's work was finished and pronounced "very good." In this inspired account of creation there is no reference to evil.
