LIVING WISELY

While Reading this week's Christian Science Bible Lesson, titled "Mind," I was struck by the connection it makes between wisdom and obedience to God—specifically, how putting God first in our lives helps us to live wisely, and to understand God as the one Mind.

Section I begins: "And God spake all these words, saying, Thou shalt have no other gods before me" (Ex. 20:1, 3, citation 1). In Science and Health, Mary Baker Eddy wrote that this commandment was her "favorite text" because it signifies that "all men shall have one Mind"—the basis for "the Science of being, by which man demonstrates health, holiness, and life eternal" (p. 340, cit. 1).
