A BEAUTIFUL PROMISE
The fear and dread of making mistakes can become an obsession. And dismay over past slipups may sometimes linger unresolved for years.
Yet throughout Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy maintains that God and His gracious love alone governs. As I've thought about this and felt His power and unchanging love in the details of each day, my view of myself and others is more forgiving.
The way the word mistake appears on page 92 has brought a freshness to my perspective, kind of like a sunrise suddenly revealing new views of the shore. "The mistake of thinking that error can be real," she wrote, "when it is merely the absence of truth, leads to belief in the superiority of error." The logic feels simple, drawing me to sit again at Love's feet—to see and feel the truth that because error (i.e., a mistake) has no divine foundation, it's a bluff, a suggestion that God somehow is out of the picture, and that we can be alone, flailing about without help or guidance. How impossible that is!
