Charting the world's progress

I like to keep up with the world’s challenges and progress by reading The Christian Science Monitor, and I enjoy the “People Making a Difference” column. Having relied on prayer for many years, I’ve learned that the spiritual truths seen in prayer can reach around the world and help others in ways we may never know. That’s because the Christ—God’s divine message of Truth—is actually speaking to human consciousness. The communication might be felt in the form of a protective warning or a sense of peace, joy, hope, or strength. 

Christ Jesus promised, “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32). So no matter how extreme our circumstances, God’s will is for our good. This means we can trust not only that we will find healing when there is trouble but also that, as the expression of God, or good, we have the infinite good which belongs to the kingdom of heaven.

One should never underestimate how far and wide the truth of God’s goodness can go. Everyone can be a part of the spiritual activity of aiding the world’s progress, as the Monitor is doing.
