"All good for you His wisdom planned"

God is Love. He is also Father-Mother. His regard then for His children is one of benevolent, ceaseless kindness. God's fatherhood is manifested in the unlimited good with which He blesses His ideas. A humanly loving parent would not desire to withhold good from his children; but the parent Mind draws upon its own infinite resources. We behold God's motherhood in the tender protection with which all that He creates is perpetually surrounded.

Man's relation to God is that of a son. He is inseparable from good, the heir of perfect Love. As God's goodness is forever flowing freely, man is continuously expressing His bounty in spiritual understanding, holiness, immortality. God's goodness never ceases, and man's heritage of blessedness knows no diminution or stoppage.

As these truths are understood, they are manifested humanly in harmony, health, success, happiness, home, companionship, security. Peter, in his first epistle, speaks of "an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven" for us. It can never be lost to us, because it is spiritual and indestructible.
