'GO THY WAY'

A Story in this week's Bible Lesson on the subject "Unreality" contains a thought-provoking demand. Jesus makes the demand of a nobleman who begs Jesus to come home with him and heal his dying son. Rather than following the man home, however, Jesus tells him, "Go thy way; thy son liveth" (see citation 20, John 4:46-53).

As I read the story, this powerful command spoke to me in ways like these: "Go thy way—God is real and good. Sickness and evil are unreal. Go thy way—God is Life. Your son, right now, lives! And all of God's children live to express their perfect, eternal Father-Mother, Life."
