Suffering is Oft the Divine Agent?

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!

    444 : 2-6, 10-12 In some way, sooner or later, all must rise superior to materiality, and suffering is oft the divine agent in this elevation. “All things work together for good to them that love God,” is the dictum of Scripture.
    Step by step will those who trust Him find that “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

    This statement could sound contradictory since God does not send suffering to His own, but the suffering we seem to have each encountered sent us seeking God more. From our testimonies it is clear we all got here due to some suffering….. none of us would be here striving had there not been some suffering that led us here. Unfortunate most do not do so because of Science; since Mrs. Eddy says it’s either through Science or suffering and somehow the latter seem to be the most common catalyst.
    thank God there comes a time, if we do not give up, when we can look back and give thanks for the “salutary challenges” along the way!
