No limited connection to good

Recently, while working on my computer, I lost access to my email. A diagnostic message came up on the screen saying, “Limited connection to the internet.” I rebooted, regained my full internet connection, and got back to checking my emails.

Later in the day the words “limited connection” popped back into my thought in a totally different context that had nothing to do with my computer. Sometimes we may get mental messages suggesting we have a limited relation to good, to health, to supply. From a material perspective, our unity with good can seem tenuous, subject to things such as being in the right place at the right time, age, heredity, or the economy.

Is there any way out of this “limited relation to good” thinking? Yes, by turning our thought to our unlimited unity with God, good. In the Bible, the book of Genesis shows our unbreakable relation to God: “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good” (1:31). We have a divinely authorized and established relation to good because we are made in the spiritual image and likeness of God. God is only good, all good. That inherent goodness is integral to our very being.
