Protected from ear injury

A while back, as I was reading the weekly Christian Science Bible Lesson, I was struck by a passage from Proverbs, which reads, “The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the Lord hath made even both of them” (20:12 ).

I studied the Lesson every day that week, trying to understand the spiritual meaning of those words—that in reality we hear and see spiritually, not materially, because our identity did not originate in matter, but came from God, our ever-present, loving Father and Mother. And God is Spirit, so we are spiritual. As we read in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, “According to Christian Science, the only real senses of man are spiritual, emanating from divine Mind” (p. 284 ).
