Drawing together as family

There is probably no greater longing than to know we are loved—to feel that we belong to a family that cares.

For some, a happy, united family may be a wonderful blessing in their lives; for others, it may remain an unfulfilled hope. Yet could we imagine that God would not bless His children equally with love and understanding? It would be unthinkable for some to be destined to be "on the outside" of His family. God loves and cares for all. And to be included in a strong family circle isn't impossible for anyone, no matter what circumstances the world may seem to have dealt.

It is possible for us to see more of God's infinite love here and now. In fact, seeing more of His love begins with understanding that God is infinite Love and is not limited by human foibles or human failures. This truer, Christianly scientific view of God is something Mrs. Eddy discovered and wrote about in Science and Health. She says that thinking of God as having human limitations is a mistake, and that as we learn what God's nature actually is, our lives take on a whole new dimension. She explains, "This human sense of Deity yields to the divine sense, even as the material sense of personality yields to the incorporeal sense of God and man as the infinite Principle and infinite idea,—as one Father with His universal family, held in the gospel of Love."
