MAKING COLDS UNCOMMON FOR THE COMMON GOOD

EARLY IN MY STUDYof Christian Science, I visited a Christian Science practitioner regularly, mostly to ask questions. At one visit, it was obvious that I had a heavy cold. The practitioner started telling me some spiritual truths that prayerfully addressed my physical condition. I didn't understand what she was saying, and I really didn't feel like making the effort to try.

At one point, though, I got the impression that if I would embrace the truth of what she was saying, my change of thinking would not only bless me but others as well. I distinctly remember thinking something along the lines of, "It's not worth the effort to change my thinking just for myself, but if it will help anyone else, I'll try." And I must have said something like that to the practitioner, for she assured me that my standing for the spiritual truths of God's allness and goodness would indeed bless others. She concluded by saying that some day I would realize that being healed through spiritual means would be well worth it to me also. This certainly has proved to be true.
