Tenderness

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!

    “Tenderness accompanies all the might of Spirit.” This truth is a wonderful thing to ponder and take to heart. I never understood how merciful God is until coming to Plainfield. I even believed for a long time that God punished with the weather and that forever forgiveness was hard to get. Now I understand that after repenting and changing, we are forgiven, and it is disrespectful not to fully accept God’s forgiveness.The other thing I have learned is that we must forgive others , not because we are nice, but it is a command since we ourselves have been forgiven. God’s tender mercy is a beautiful thing.

    I thought about this citation too. At first glance tenderness seemed not to go with “might”
    From the 1828 dictionary tenderness is:
    3. Kind attention; anxiety for the good of another, or to save him from pain.
    4. Scrupulousness; caution; extreme care or concern not to give or to commit offense; as tenderness of conscience.
    These definitions makes tenderness and might a perfect fit. Perhaps like Mercy and Judgement.Grateful for the
    practice of looking up words for their expanded meanings.

    Thank you for these postings on tenderness. I think of Truth and Love as the strength of God together with His lovingkindness and tendermercy. How good, great,and wonderful is our God!
