One of the limiting beliefs by which mortal mind seeks to prove that man is mortal and a creator, that good and evil are from the same source, that matter has life and intelligence, is that of family relationship. Men have readily accepted this relationship, and have clung to it. It has been kept continually before them. But now, in the midst of war, when families are parted, when millions of men in the armed forces of the world are far from those they love, it is well to consider family from the higher point of view indicated by Christ Jesus and made plain and demonstrable in Christian Science.

A point in his teaching which Jesus frequently reiterated was the fatherhood of God. He did not appropriate such divine fatherhood for himself alone, or for his disciples, but indicated that this fatherhood embraced all. When his disciples asked that they should be taught how to pray, Jesus began by using those familiar and loved words. "Our Father."
