MEEKNESS AND PEACE

The thirty-seventh Psalm has comforted many who have watched the apparent success of evildoers, for there they have found encouragement to trust God and commit their ways to Him. "Rest in the Lord," we read (verse 7), "and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way." And one of the Master's Beatitudes echoes the eleventh verse of this Psalm, "The meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace."

Christian Science brings fresh meaning to meekness, for it inspires patience and long-suffering based upon the understanding that nothing is real but God and His perfect creation. It reveals man as not sinful and mortal, but sinless and immortal; as the spiritual expression of God, who is Spirit. Furthermore, it exposes the false, suppositional nature of the material senses, which perceive man as a physical personality, self-deceived, lured by evil, and often overwhelmed by inundant mental forces he little understands.
