Close-up on the BIBLE LESSONS

I'VE OFTEN THOUGHT about a passage from the Manual of The Mother Church that mentions the Bible Lesson as "a lesson on which the prosperity of Christian Science largely depends" (p. 31). But isn't it a Lesson on which our own individual well-being largely depends, too? So many healings of physical distress, relationship issues, lack of employment relate back to our own individual study of the Bible Lesson.

Over the years, I've read and heard of the gratitude people feel for the Bible Lessons. I've rejoiced with people who have been healed by one line from a Lesson and others whose lives have turned around because one section so stood out to them.
