THE FRUITS OF GOD'S HANDIWORK

THE BIBLE LESSON THIS WEEK, titled "God the Only Cause and Creator," speaks of the glorious fruits of God's handiwork. Beginning with the Golden Text and the Responsive Reading, this Lesson praises the supremacy of God's goodness made evident in nature, in all people, and indeed in all of Creation!

An early citation from Science and Health, "Nature and revelation inform us that like produces like" (p. 276, Section I, citation 2), reminded me of the tall, beautiful apricot tree that grew near the back fence of our yard when I was growing up. Its branches blossomed in the spring, and in mid-June I could pick its delicious fruit. I never doubted that the fruit from that tree would be apricots. I wouldn't expect apples or cherries or peaches—just apricots. Similarly, this week's Lesson makes the point that the fruit of God's work is undeniably Godlike.
