SHELTERED AND SURROUNDED BY GOOD

When Noah built an ark for safety from the flood, he received this message from God (Gen. 6:14—18): "Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. . . . And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die. But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee."

In the Glossary of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy gives as part of her definition of "ark" (p. 581), "Safety; the idea, or reflection, of Truth, proved to be as immortal as its Principle; the understanding of Spirit, destroying belief inmatter." In order to complete our ark we too must "pitch it within and without" with such Godlike qualities as purity, love, gentleness, kindness, joy, steadfastness, and faithfulness so that no error of any kind can enter. Then we may invite all those who will, to enter this ark of spiritual consciousness with us.
