Eat It Up

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!

    Revelation 10: 9, 10
    “And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
    And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up.”

    This got me thinking, how much do I “eat up” or diligently read the little book (Science & Health)? I think it was Edward Kimball who said he had read it 50 times, and every time he finished, he would begin it again.
    Suzanne read a testimony several weeks ago of someone who was healed after reading it 11 times.
    So, I have no right to complain about anything if I am not imbibing, pondering, meditating, or studying S&H and applying it on a daily basis. But not just reading the citations in the lesson or skipping here and there – reading it through and then reading it again.

    “Mortals, obey the heavenly evangel. Take divine Science. Read this book from beginning to end. Study it, ponder it. It will be indeed sweet at its first taste, when it heals you; but murmur not over Truth, if you find its digestion bitter.”
