IN TOUCH WITH SOMETHING GOOD

A woman who is a student of Christian Science had just given a number to the telephone operator in the hotel in which she lives. Before making the desired connection the operator said: "May I tell you something? I always feel so happy when I hear your voice. I feel I am in touch with something good." The Scientist rejoiced over this message, for she saw in it not a personal tribute, but a recognition of the goodness of God which she daily, hourly, was striving to reflect.

In her book "Miscellaneous Writings" Mary Baker Eddy makes this statement (pp. 13, 14): "Seek the Anglo-Saxon term for God, and you will find it to be good; then define good as God, and you will find that good is omnipotence, has all power; it fills all space, being omnipresent; hence, there is neither place nor power left for evil." A truism, very evidently true, is that like begets like. The great First Cause, therefore, being good, must beget only that which is good. Truly does the Scripture state, "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good" (Gen. 1:31). Earlier in this chapter, man has been defined as the image and likeness of his infinitely good creator. Thus Christian Science logically teaches that man exists as the reflection or expression of good, God. When a student of this great truth is consciously reflecting good, harmony, and unselfed love in his daily walk and conversation, small wonder that a thought responsive to good should feel God's presence, as did the telephone operator.
