"GREAT PEACE HAVE THEY"

Amid the prevalent unrest and confusion in the world, students of Christian Science find deep satisfaction and comfort in the glorious truths, admonitions, and promises given in their Book of books, the Bible. For instance, in the 119th Psalm is this arresting statement: "Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them."

David, through his steadfast love for God and His law of good, proved the truth of these words many times. As a young shepherd boy he challenged and conquered the giant Goliath, who had paralyzed the armies of Israel. This act of valor was so widely acknowledged that it aroused King Saul's jealousy and hatred and led him to plan David's destruction. Eventually David was forced to live as a hunted animal among the caves of the hills. But this injustice did not embitter him toward his king. Because he loved God's law, David knew no offense. Great was his peace. His love of God was such that he twice resisted the temptation to kill Saul when he lay sleeping within his power.
