True Understanding-How Important It Is!

On the wall behind the Readers' desk in our branch Church of Christ, Scientist, these words from the Bible are painted: "With all thy getting get understanding." Prov. 4:7; Every time I enter the auditorium, I glance at that quotation, and it never fails to inspire me. There is joy in understanding God and the real man, His reflection.

Christ Jesus taught man's sonship with God, and Mrs. Eddy shows clearly and convincingly in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health, the coincidence between the divine Spirit and the real man, made in Spirit's likeness. We can practically apply this understanding of our true identity and coincidence with the Father. Convinced of our real being as God's children—spiritual and not material—we can go forward to demonstrate that the loved child of God is not involved in wrongdoing, sickness, or death.
