SEEING GOOD BRINGS HEALING

One day, when in church, a student of Christian Science sat condemning herself severely because of the thick bifocal glasses that she wore. She took them off and looked toward the inscription on the front wall of the church. The words were nothing more than a colored blur, and the student, feeling both helpless and inadequate, put on the glasses again. Nevertheless, she turned to God in prayer and asked to be shown the way to think rightly. This student had tried many times in the past to demonstrate the truth concerning vision; but she admitted to herself then, for the first time, that she had reached the conclusion that she would always wear glasses.

A great spiritual desire swept over her to prove God's allness in overcoming this problem, as she had overcome so many others. Then the thought came to her that if she wanted good sight, she must see good everywhere. The student pondered this carefully and reasoned that if she wanted to manifest normal eyesight, she would have to do just that: see good, the true good, the goodness of God. She resolved that from that moment on she would try honestly, to the very best of her ability, to see good—to discern good spiritually.
