THE UNIVERSALITY OF GOOD

Are we sometimes perplexed as to why we are here or as to what our aim and purpose in life should be? Mary Baker Eddy beautifully clarifies such quandaries in a letter to a branch Church of Christ, Scientist. She writes (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 165): "As an active portion of one stupendous whole, goodness identifies man with universal good. Thus may each member of this church rise above the oft-repeated inquiry. What am I? to the scientific response: I am able to impart truth, health, and happiness, and this is my rock of salvation and my reason for existing."

To enrich our understanding of good as universal, we must first recognize God as divine Principle and acknowledge that He alone governs the universe and man. Then we can rejoice in the knowledge that God is expressing His holy purpose and plan through His idea, man.
