Spiritual Encouragement

Consciously or unconsciously every human being is stirred by encouragement to think and work more effectively and to win higher and more lasting achievements. At no time in world history have so many people been in greater need of the cheering, heartening, strengthening power of right encouragement. It is a potent antidote to the fear, turmoil, and defeatism which appear to beset mankind so confusingly today.

But what is right encouragement? Is it blind optimism? Is it wishful thinking? Is it merely whistling to keep up one's own or another's courage? No, the encouragement which Christian Science offers is an infusion into one's thought of courage, springing from the unshakable confidence that God is absolute intelligence, Life, Love, Principle. Hence He neither promulgates nor permits the strife and danger which a material sense of things asserts is surrounding and assailing us all. His is a realm, and truly there is no other realm, of law and order. He holds His beloved people in His omnipotent care without a moment's cessation. He bestows on us only joy, peace, plenty, satisfaction.
