Love Inexhaustible

Paul wrote to the Corinthians (II Cor. 4:8), "We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair."

To despair is to accept the belief that some situation is beyond all hope of correction. But whatever the condition to be overcome, there is hope in the truth of being, as taught and demonstrated by Christ Jesus, that God is Love and that man is forever loved. Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health (p. 140), "The Christian Science God is universal, eternal, divine Love, which changeth not and causeth no evil, disease, nor death." She also tells us, "Man is idea, the image, of Love; he is not physique" (ibid., p. 475). Love expresses itself in its own ideas.

The qualities which are manifest in a loving or lovable person or in a harmonious situation or relationship are reflections of inexhaustible, indefatigable, infinite Love. Love may be expressed to us through a person or a harmonious condition; but if we remember that the qualities of true Love cannot be limited to such person or condition, then we can demonstrate that the good we experience cannot be lost, disturbed, or exhausted.
