The Shepherding Mind

In Scripture, God is often referred to as the Shepherd and His people as His sheep. By this word picture the Bible illustrates our heavenly Father's tender, watchful care for each one of us.

In Christian Science we learn to know God also as the ever-present, divine Mind, and man in his true being as individual, spiritual consciousness dwelling within the allness of this Mind as its individualized expression. Thus, when we say that God takes care of man, we are really saying that the divine Mind cares about and cares for each individual consciousness, furnishing it with the divinely mental qualities needed for total well-being, for health and happiness, security and peace. With God as the shepherding Mind and individual consciousness as the sheep, the pastures man feeds upon are those elements of Mind that nourish and sustain—qualities such as praise, love, joy, intelligence, purity, and assurance.
