THE ADJUSTMENT OF RELATIONSHIPS

Mary Baker Eddy writes in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 132), "The Christian Scientist knows that spiritual faith and understanding pass through the waters of Meribah here—bitter waters; but he also knows they embark for infinity and anchor in omnipotence."

Our faith is undoubtedly tried and our understanding tested. Our spiritual inheritance as children of God is proved step by step, and every Christian Scientist can prove it. The question may sometimes be asked, "How shall I think on my problem if it does not seem to be working out in the way I would hope for? I have prayed over it, but conditions still remain inharmonious." In such a case, do we put aside human will and stop the common practice of outlining how the healing is to take place? This particularly refers to the adjustment of human relationships or the satisfactory solution of a business problem. Christian Science, when correctly applied, heals domestic inharmony or a business difficulty as naturally as it heals a physical ailment. Broadly speaking, it does so on the basis of the nothingness of evil and the allness of God, or good.
