"a buckler to them…"

The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    “He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.” (Prov. 2:7)

    Webster’s 1828 – Buckler: A kind of shield, or piece of defensive armor, anciently used in war. It was composed of wood, or wickers woven together, covered with skin or leather, fortified with plates of brass or other metal, and worn on the left arm. On the middle was an umbo, boss or prominence, very useful in causing stones and darts to glance off. The buckler often was four feet long, and covered the whole body.

    I never looked up the word “buckler” before. This definition gave me new meaning to the protection and governance of Mind, — when I “walk uprightly”; that is, when I live “honestly; with strict observance of rectitude.” It is such a complete shield and protection — in all jurisdiction, in all movement, in all faculties, in all medicine, — and teaches me without a torrent of my words. This Lesson is the most inspiring and comprehensive lesson on Mind that I have ever read. Thank you, Lesson-writer.
