"WHERE HAVE YE LAID HIM?"

One Sunday the writer was asked by a Christian Science practitioner to whom she had mentioned a problem that was troubling her, "Where have you laid yourself?" This question awakened her to see how challenging was the question uttered by the Master when he said to Martha and Mary (John 11:34), "Where have ye laid him?"

Jesus may well have been asking where they had laid their human concept of their brother. And they, believing their brother to have lived in matter and died out of it, replied. "Come and see"; and they led him to the grave. No wonder the beloved Master wept when he saw how they and those who were with them had lost faith and were blinded by the mortal belief of death and separation! Had he accepted what those around him were believing, he would not have been able to restore Lazarus; but his pure understanding of man as the forever reflection of indestructible Life enabled him to bring back his friend from the grave.
