"A perfect and just measure"

In the twenty-fifth chapter of Deuteronomy we find this admonition: "Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great and a small. But thou shalt have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shalt thou have." Surely, to a people led by the realization that "the Lord our God is one Lord," divers weights and measures would imply duality, not oneness; divisibility, not wholeness.

Material sense measures everything in its own imperfect and unjust way, and then chafes under its self-imposed restrictions. Spiritual understanding, as revealed to this age by Mary Baker Eddy, shows clearly that one's standard of measurement, to be perfect and just, must be divine; therefore illimitable. In the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy says (p. 336), "Allness is the measure of the infinite, and nothing less can express God."
