Keep your sense of infinitude alive!

An important point was being made. That much was clear to me and the rest of our Christian Science Sunday School class. Of course, most of our thoughts were concerned with high school or college. But I loved our teacher, and if she said it was important not to bury our sense of infinitude, then I accepted it.

She often referred to that statement in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures where Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes, "We bury the sense of infinitude, when we admit that, although God is infinite, evil has a place in this infinity, for evil can have no place, where all space is filled with God." Science and Health, p. 469.

Frankly, at the time, I didn't know what this statement meant. It only began to dawn on me in later years that here is a powerful, effective truth. Just what is "the sense of infinitude"? How do we get it? How do we maintain it—keep it alive?
