No steering off course

For the Lesson titled “Mind” from February 17–23, 2014

This week’s Christian Science Bible Lesson, titled “Mind,” shares insights and examples that point to our innate connectivity to one divine Mind. And further, it shows us that Mind, God, provides us with unfailing guidance. If ever questioning our decisions and direction, we can realize that the personal I doesn’t know all the answers, but Mind does, and when we get the personal I out of the way and listen to Mind’s direction, we can’t steer wrong! This wonderful promise of Mind’s unerring direction is illustrated in this Lesson through the examples of Abraham, Elijah, and Christ Jesus.

When Abraham was told by God to divide the land between his nephew, Lot, and himself, Abraham didn’t worry about knowing which part would be his. He simply trusted God as he had done throughout his life, and willingly listened to God’s direction, without argument (see Genesis, chaps. 12 and 13, citations 2 and 3). Abraham is the proverbial example of faith and trust in God (see Hebrews 11:8–10). No wonder he is a patriarch of the Bible, whose position of faith and humility is the starting point of much growth forward.
