"PRESENCE OF HEALTH"

How do we regard health? As a comfortable arrangement of matter? A delicately balanced physical condition which age, accident, or sinister invasion of disease can disorganize, injure, or deform? Or do we understand health as the permanent condition of spiritual reality, the normal, constant, and characteristic state of all God's creation, dependent upon and inseparable from Him? Our honest answer to these questions is highly important to our well-being.

The Psalmist refers to God as "the health of my countenance" (Ps. 42:11). In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy writes (p. 120), "Health is not a condition of matter, but of Mind; nor can the material senses bear reliable testimony on the subject of health."
