Memory Can Serve Us Well

Christian Science shows us that the allness and goodness of God is an ever-present fact, a fact that can be realized and applied only in the living present. An understanding of this stops us from disturbing and darkening our thought by morbidly brooding on unhappy events in the past, thus harming our health and well-being.

However, the human faculty of memory can be seen as a blessing when it brings to thought happenings of lasting significance. Who among us does not recognize the positive lessons gained from the remembrance of brave and unselfish deeds or happy hours spent with loved ones? When, for example, we call to mind the personal sacrifice made by many who fought for their country, we should feel impelled to be of greater service ourselves—to work and pray for a world where war and conflict are unknown.
