No need for glasses

A few years ago, I found myself in a state of turmoil when I realized someone I admired for his integrity and intelligence was striking out at me concerning my spiritual beliefs and endeavoring to turn others who were very dear to me toward his point of view. “How can I love this person?” I asked myself time and again. I began to tie myself in knots, and soon I wasn’t feeling well at all. This became a clear signal to me to get praying about this situation and bring God fully into the picture.

As I studied the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, I was reminded of the importance of identifying myself and all others as spiritual ideas of God—loving, pure, harmless, formed in God’s image and likeness (see Genesis 1:26). Then, one day while I was thinking deeply about our relationship to God, I picked up my glasses to read an article in one of the Christian Science magazines and found that although I could make out the words, they were not clear enough for me to benefit from my reading.

Now, more than ever, I felt it pertinent that I fully understand the law of Love, which is God—the Love that perfectly controls every condition and function of Love’s sons and daughters, wherever they are, and however they may connect with us.
