Finding Our Real Home

"The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head." While most Christians are familiar with these words of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew (8:20), probably none of them would find it possible to think of Jesus as ever having been homeless. He was always at home—in the desert, on the hillside, beside the sea—wherever he went to heal and teach. He had everything that he needed at all times, even a room "furnished and prepared" for the last supper.

Christian Scientists likewise realize that man is never homeless. They know that he rests secure in infinite Love, and, understanding this, they are at home and at peace in all places and under all circumstances. They also know that they can express hospitality and brotherly love wherever they may be, because these are spiritual qualities, unhampered and unlimited by time or place.
