Lessons in worth and humility

I had always been proud of the religion ingrained in me from childhood. And yet I was taught to accept my existence as a sinner living in a state of unworthiness. My church friends said that believing this was a good thing; they said it had a lot to do with humility. 

Later, after I joined the United States Air Force, that idea was challenged at a time when I was on leave stateside. I decided to check out a Christian Science Society on Wednesday evening. That event defied my set ideas and led to the discovery of true humility as a powerful healing idea.

After the service I went back to see the First Reader and mumbled something about wanting to know more about Christian Science, “… if only I were worthy.” He quickly answered, “You are worthy,” and pressed a copy of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy into my hands. It proved to be better than gold.
