What More Can Any Father Do?

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!

    Science and Health, p.387 The history of Christianity furnishes sublime proofs of the supporting influence and protecting power bestowed on man by his heavenly Father, omnipotent Mind, who gives man faith and understanding whereby to defend himself, not only from temptation, but from bodily suffering. (Emphasis Added)

    Sometimes we hear this question: How can I have more faith and understanding? The first answer is right here; our loving Father gives us both faith and understanding. But have we asked Him and are we ready to humbly receive, or are we still looking at other “things” which we continue to have faith in?

    Secondly, if we would remember all the good He has done, which should increase our faith and understanding and stop giving the glory to other things; to ourselves, other people, some diet, exercise routine, materia medica etc. our faith and understanding in God would increase.

    From Divinity Course and General Collectanea, The Bluebook pg. 61 is this beautiful instruction: God will direct you in all your ways, if you trust Him; faith must take hold before sight or fruition, and this faith will, when instructed in divine Science, become understanding and you will have no doubts, but every proof of His promise, ‘Lo! I am with you alway.’
