Sit in Heaven and Laugh

Perhaps occasionally in our human relations someone has unjustly maligned us and caused us much mental anguish. Then forgiving and forgetting seems hard to come by, and resentment takes over our mental home.

Such was the experience of a student of Christian Science. Then one day she recounted to a friend, who was a Christian Science practitioner, the falsehoods and abuses to which she was being subjected. The practitioner saw how ridiculous the falsehoods were. She also pointed out that any supposed mortal mind unlike the one Mind, God, was itself a liar. She said: "We don't believe the lies of a fictitious mortal mind and can't be hurt by its taxings. The Bible says of God. 'He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh.'" Ps. 2:4; Then she added: "You can claim your status as God's reflection. You can sit in heaven and laugh." This aroused the student, and gratefully she sought the deeper meaning of this quotation.
