The stamp of Truth— "the impress of heaven"

Recently, as I was using my rubber stamp on an envelope, I thought how impossible it would be for anyone to misread my address, for if a stamp says Hamburg no one could read it as Chicago! And it occurred to me that similarly man, God's image and likeness, as we read in Genesis 1:26, cannot be mistaken for anything but the beloved child of God, perfect and good. He cannot express anything but God's qualities.

Knowing this truth had brought me a wonderful healing shortly before. As I was arranging some purchases in my car in front of a supermarket, the car door suddenly slammed on my hand, catching my fingers in an iron grip. I quickly released the door with my other hand and then clung to the truth of my spiritual being, knowing that I was an idea of God and therefore could not be hurt in any way. Since man's being is wholly spiritual, it is not subject to any law of matter—even the one that calls itself an accident. Mrs. Eddy says in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health, "Under divine Providence there can be no accidents, since there is no room for imperfection in perfection." Science and Health, p. 424.
