“an excellent spirit was in him”

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. 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; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    “Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him;” (Daniel 6:3)
    Daniel was living on the human level right along with the other presidents and the princes. In thinking of what was so different with him I remembered the following, “… the heavens and earth to one human consciousness, that consciousness which God bestows, are spiritual, while to another, the unillumined human mind, the vision is material.” (Science and Health p. 572) I found that helpful.
    How beautiful that King Darius was enlightened enough to truly appreciate Daniel. Even his delight in finding Daniel safe in the lion’s den seemed an expression of unselfish, even unselfed love, rather than just relief at not losing a faithful president so valuable to him as king. Of course it also meant not losing that “excellent spirit.”
    Thanks to the lesson writer for a powerful lesson.
