Lessons on conquering contagion

When times are tough, it’s natural to turn to whatever we’ve found helpful to get us through. Maybe we also look for something we can learn from others. Whenever contagion is a problem in our communities, I often find myself considering three lessons that have come along over the years to teach me about our ability to confidently face and conquer this problem.

The first lesson is about our relation to God, the infinite Spirit that fills all space. The Apostle Paul wrote, “Ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you” (Romans 8:9). We may seem to be physical bodies living in a material world, but that’s not the essence of us as we are known by God. Our real identity is spiritual. What truly defines us are the qualities of God, whose nature we are made to express.

God is totally good, and so is His creation. That means we actually are perfect and whole, forever unlimited by material so-called laws of health. God alone makes conditions for man, and those conditions are always spiritual and harmonious.
