Redeemed by the riches of Spirit

One day, soon after I had become a serious student of Christian Science, I became ill with influenza. I read the Lesson outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly in the morning, and this verse stood out to me: "Thus saith the Lord, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money" (Isa. 52:3).

At this time my routine in the evening was to bathe the children, read them a section of the Lesson and a bedtime story, after which I would put the two-and-a-half-year-old to bed and help our six-year-old son with his school homework. That evening, however, I felt too ill to bathe the children. After procrastinating for some minutes, I gave myself a shake and thought, "At least read the Lesson to them."
