The understanding of what demonstration...

The understanding of what demonstration in Christian Science really is appeared clearly to me during a season of extensive study. I saw that demonstration comes as we catch a glimpse of a divine law, which has been operating all the time, and we catch such a glimpse as we are prepared to see it. I found that we become ready to catch this glimpse as we claim that the truths of Science are true whether we understand them or not. Then demonstration takes place, and we begin to understand. We become aware that the spiritual universe is present and that everything in it is exactly right.

When our son was eight years old, he used the truth to work out a school problem with no help from anyone. This was his first demonstration through his own application of Science. Another youngster was unkind to him. He told me that he let it lie and knew the truth that all is well. Later, the other boy came to play joyously.

Our son was healed of a severe case of pneumonia. We knew that divine law was in operation, and we stood firmly by the truth that since he actually belonged to God, the Father, as His spiritual offspring, he was being taken care of by the Father. We endeavored to listen to God's voice and thereby shut out all suggestions of a lack of any of God's qualities. The healing came in about a week, and there were no aftereffects.
