Good Never Absent, Never Lessened

To people everywhere who have been dislocated by the war, who have had to turn from ways of living and prospects which they cherished to others of which they knew little and which they would not have chosen, Christian Science offers assurances of the most heartening character. It shows not only that they can do what is needful under the unfamiliar conditions and make it sufficiently helpful to their neighbors and their countries, but that they can be truly blessed themselves in doing it. The suggestion that by any change of circumstances whatsoever men and women can be shut off from what is necessary for their satisfactions and progress is completely refuted by this Science.

This is not less true for young men called into military service than for any others. If they have been obliged to turn from work for which they had shown special aptitude and been carefully preparing for years, good is not for that reason less available for them. So with young women who are having to deal with new and similarly trying conditions. And it is equally true for all the multitudes of men and women already established in their homes and work who have had to give them up or readjust them.

The basis of this clear assurance is the actual character of good, as revealed in Science. Good, by its very nature, cannot be absent. The term is synonymous in Science with God, who is the omnipresent, all-inclusive Principle of being. Therefore good, far from being elusive or rare, is, in absolute fact, inescapable.
