Learning more about God

One evening, I felt a sharp pain in my side. I thought I could get comfortable by lying on the couch and watching a basketball game on television. During the game, the pain left my thought, but when I got up to get ready for bed, it was still there. After my usual praying before bed, I did fall asleep but still was not completely comfortable.

In the morning, the first thought that came to me was the First Commandment: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:3). It was a very powerful thought. I remembered something that Mary Baker Eddy had written about this: “The divine Principle of the First Commandment bases the Science of being, by which man demonstrates health, holiness, and life eternal” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 340).
