Unreality!

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!

    What a wonderful Lesson! Thanks to the Lesson writer. Even one statement from it can make my day.

    God is saying from Jeremiah 30: 15. Why criest thou for thine affliction?

    17. For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD.

    And from Joel 2: 21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.

    Do I trust these declarations?

    Thank you for including the story of the enslavement of the people of Ziklag in this week’s lesson. I’m unfamiliar with that story and I was struck by how after the enslavement of the Ziklag people and their remaining relatives wailed for their loved ones and called for David’s blood, he went first to God, not on the defensive in an effort to save his own neck. David’s own wives were among the captives yet he did not react in anger. David looked to God alone for direction. With God on his side he was successful in restoring all that the Amalekites had taken as if it never happened. Unreal from the beginning. A great lesson!

    Thank you both. This lesson is also a wonderful treatment for our country. We can lift ourselves above the politicking and know that we can declare these truths and promises to protect our country and the priciples it stands on that come from God.
