Shutting the door on negative influences
One day, a stranger rang my doorbell and tried to sell me something. As it became apparent that this was a scam, it was pretty easy to say, “No, thank you,” and close the door. I walked back to my living room and sat down to relax.
Just then phone notifications displaying sensational news headlines started pinging me. Although I enjoy staying informed by reading the news on my phone, in this instance it felt intrusive, almost like an attack. Shutting my door on the notion of buying into a scam had been the obvious thing to do, but when I went back into the house and literally and mentally put my feet up, it felt more challenging to shut out the subtler disturbances.
Unlocking ideas from the Bible, Christian Science teaches the allness and goodness of God. It teaches that Life is God and cannot be divided into good and evil, for God made everything “very good” (see Genesis 1:31).
