Reflect God's Freedom of Action

We don't have to be slaves to tiring, boring, or degrading routine. We can get involved in activity that is fresh, vital, and uplifting. We can do this through expressing the right ideas that flow freely from the one governing Principle, God.

In Science and Health, Mrs. Eddy writes of God: "He is divine Principle, Love, the universal cause, the only creator, and there is no other self-existence. He is all-inclusive, and is reflected by all that is real and eternal and by nothing else. He fills all space, and it is impossible to conceive of such omnipresence and individuality except as infinite Spirit or Mind." Science and Health, p. 331;

Fatigue, monotony, and failure are not characteristics of God; therefore, as the reflections of God, created "in his own image," Gen. 1:27; we are not subject to them. In reality, as Christian Science makes clear, God has accomplished all that needs to be done, and He has done it well. His "very good," v. 31 ; infinitely fresh, and varied creation cannot be improved upon but only joyously and continuously reflected. Nor is the ceaseless operation of His ideas ever too strenuous, for whatever God, omnipotent Mind, requires of His children, He also provides for them through His own effortless facility. The understanding of omnipotence gives human beings increased strength and endurance. God can no more exhaust the real man than the original can wear out its mirrored image.
