Helping students live their full potential

Across the globe, teachers, parents, and others have dedicated themselves to helping students live their full potential. For me, the meticulous care taken to support student progress brings to thought the image of a mother bird brooding protectively over her young, tenderly guiding their efforts so that they can learn to fend for themselves—an image also used in the Bible to depict God’s nurturing love (see, for instance, Deuteronomy 32:11 ).

Christian Science identifies God as both Father and Mother, tenderly caring for His, Her, spiritual offspring—which is what we all are. The Christian Science Monitor’s founder, Mary Baker Eddy, in her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, writes, “Father-Mother is the name for Deity, which indicates His tender relationship to His spiritual creation” (p. 332 ). Since God is infinite, ever-present Love and man is God’s expression, it is natural for each of us to express qualities such as kindness, compassion, and unselfish care for others.
