"A MERE DROP IN THE BUCKET"

Many times as we go about our daily activity we may wonder just how important we are in the unfoldment of the divine plan and purpose. Christian Science has come to dispel any uncertainty in the thought of mankind about this point. In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy defines man as "the full representation of Mind" (p. 591). so man is vital in the expressing of God. Man collectively represents the fullness of God; man individually expresses all His qualities and attributes and is thus identified with the true source of all goodness.

Because it takes all of God's ideas to express the whole of God, we can see the vital part that individual man must have in this expression. For if individual man did not express all the qualities of God, then the fullness of God could never be made manifest. Therefore, individual man is important to the completeness of the divine plan and purpose. Mrs. Eddy perceived this great fact of being when she wrote in her book, "Pulpit and Press" (p. 4): "Is not a man metaphysically and mathematically number one, a unit, and therefore whole number, governed and protected by his divine Principle, God? You have simply to preserve a scientific, positive sense of unity with your divine source, and daily demonstrate this. Then you will find that one is as important a factor as duodecillions in being and doing right, and thus demonstrating deific Principle."
