With reasoning anchored in God, no more worrisome “what ifs”

It’s easy to become stymied by what we don’t know, and to let our thoughts wander in “what ifs”—imagining and worrying about what’s happening or might happen. This has always been true for humanity, but is especially so with the coronavirus pandemic and the accompanying financial instability. 

Thankfully, there is something we can know right now that can free us from those “what ifs” and get us reasoning in a way that can move us all forward safely and securely. It’s embodied in what Christ Jesus taught and practiced. Referring to Jesus, Mary Baker Eddy wrote this arresting statement in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: “Jesus of Nazareth was the most scientific man that ever trod the globe” (p. 313). 

“Scientific”? How could Mrs. Eddy have come to that amazing conclusion? Well, it wasn’t guesswork. It came to her as a revelation from God that He is the universal divine Principle—the eternal Truth, Life, and Love of all creation—and that Jesus proved this through his healing works. In this divine Science, man’s (everyone’s) true identity is the eternal, spiritual reflection of the one perfect, unchangeable, universal Principle.
