CULTIVATING SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING

Often we hear this said: "Oh, it is impossible to keep our thinking straight all the time." It may seem difficult, but it is possible. In Psalms we read (119:130), "The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple." And in his epistle to the Colossians, Paul emphasizes the importance of being filled with spiritual understanding in order that we may increase our knowledge of God and be fruitful in our undertakings.

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy has this to say to her students (p. 271): "In Latin the word rendered disciple signifies student; and the word indicates that the power of healing was not a supernatural gift to those learners, but the result of their cultivated spiritual understanding of the divine Science, which their Master demonstrated by healing the sick and sinning."
