THE RIGHT APPROACH

Realizing that a right concept of the infinite is necessary to one's happiness and well-being, spiritually-minded men in all ages have striven for a better understanding of God, often voicing the prayerful desire of Job (23:3), "Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his seat!"

In a search for the truth in regard to any subject, a great deal, if not everything, depends upon a right approach to the subject, the mental position which one assumes. In one's quest for a better understanding of God, the mental position he takes is of great importance. In her book "Unity of Good" Mary Baker Eddy writes (p. 13), "Men must approach God reverently, doing their own work in obedience to divine law, if they would fulfil the intended harmony of being." And on page 4 of the same book she says. "To understand Him, without a single taint of our mortal, finite sense of sin, sickness, or death, is to approach Him and become like Him."
