God's Will Is Good

[Original article in German]

Jesus likened those who heard his sayings, but did not obey them, to a foolish man who built his house upon sand, and pointed out that it therefore could not withstand the storms and floods which beat upon it.

On page 597 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy defines the false sense of "will," in part, as "the motive-power of error." We sometimes scarcely realize how much human will claims to occupy our thought. If we take the Concordances to the Bible and our Leader's writings and study all the passages we find there relating to this subject, we are helped to distinguish between human will and the divine will, the latter being defined (ibid., p. 597) as "the might and wisdom of God."
