What makes sense?

I remember as a small girl being taken by my family for automobile rides around a large reservoir and dam. As I looked down from the top of the dam at the crisscrossing roads way below, the cars seemed like toys—and I truly believed they were just that. Again and again I would beg to be taken to see those "little toy cars," and it took some convincing on my parents' part to assure me that those "little cars" were really not little. Even then, for a long time I continued to think secretly of them as toy cars—but, of course, my thinking never made them so.

Through the study of Christian Science and its application in their daily lives, many are discovering the deceptive nature of material sense. Christ Jesus continually exposed this deceptiveness by his wonderful healings, completely overthrowing its evidence. What seemed to be miraculous restorations to harmony were shown to be divinely natural results of the Christ in action.

Christ is Truth revealing its infinite being and perfection to human consciousness. This activity brings healing by correcting the distortions of material sense with the truth that is actually present where the distortions or errors seem to be.
