Living lives of spiritual grandeur

A young woman found herself thinking about life more deeply than she ever had. She asked herself, "What really matters in life? What do I really want to gain in living? What do I wish to contribute to my world? Why am I alive?"

Mrs. Eddy provides a keen insight into what life is God-intended to accomplish. Referring to Christ Jesus, she writes in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health, "Through the magnitude of his human life, he demonstrated the divine Life." Science and Health, p. 54. Magnitude? Of course! Christ Jesus' supreme example indicates the potential for important contribution to the world inherent in everyone's being. Every individual is capable of a grand and magnanimous life. Divine Life, which man as God's idea expresses, is magnificent, spiritually grand; it makes man noble, important, and exalted in purpose. As God's spiritual idea, man includes right, meaningful activity and noble life motives, for man expresses the Life that is God.
