Cat bite healed

One day, my cat got spooked and bit me on the arm. The entire arm throbbed, and the area of the bite became swollen and discolored. Fear took hold, along with suggestions of poisoning. “This is what people take shots for,” I thought.

But immediately I recalled a statement in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: “All of God’s creatures, moving in the harmony of Science, are harmless, useful, indestructible” (p. 514). That meant my cat could move only in harmony with God’s law of love, which wipes out all fear.  

Forgiveness came easily when I thought about loving my cat as God loves him. I realized that in reality there was nothing to forgive, since my cat actually lives in divine Love and is Love’s perfect expression. And nothing but Love and Love’s expression have power.
