Good Enough to Be True

The remark "Too good to be true!" epitomizes the cynical feeling that in human life good is sadly lacking. But Christian Science teaches exactly the opposite. It shows us that since God is good and infinite, good itself must be unlimited and available to all.

Here is a significant point that needs our attention. To experience good in every aspect of our lives, we must first be convinced of its infinitude, and then claim it for ourselves as God's spiritual ideas. We can do so, knowing that we are not thereby depriving others, since there is abundance for all. Isaiah's invitation says, "Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters." Isa. 55:1; When we understand the allness and goodness of God, instead of saying, "Too good to be true," we can say, "Good enough to be true."

Mrs. Eddy tells us, "Omnipotence has all-power, and to acknowledge any other power is to dishonor God." Science and Health, p. 228; Good, being God, is therefore omnipotent, and if we are constantly fearing the lack of it, or expecting evil instead of it, we are not honoring God. This conclusion should arouse us to examine our thinking, for who would wish to dishonor God?
