Reliable basis of health
The Christian Science Monitor
Whenever I was fretting about some childhood problem my dad used to pull me up short by saying, "Be thankful you have your health." It did make me stop to think, but perhaps not as he intended. I was certainly grateful I had my health, but I began to worry that I would lose it.
Mortal existence is puzzling. Health seems dependent on diet, exercise, heredity, age, and even luck or chance. Can we find a more reliable basis of health? Yes—it's a spiritual basis. Mrs. Eddy points out in Science and Health, "The Bible contains the recipe for all healing." In a world where mankind seems to look every-where but to God for health, the Bible may appear to be an unlikely place to search—revolutionary even. Yet we sometimes need a revolution to free us from oppression, and sickness is certainly oppressive.
