"wise in our own eyes"

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!

    “Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight.” Isaiah.

    When I read this, I thought, can we ever think that we’re wise enough? or prudent enough? Have we arrived at a point in our growth that is “good enough”? There is no good enough! We can always do better–there is always something more to learn, more growth to be made. Those the Bible is referring to have stagnated–not a good place to be.

    I remember when I first came to Plainfield, as I worked with the practitioner, I felt like an onion that was being peeled layer by layer. It was as though all the old stuff was being peeled away, I was feeling freer, and getting closer to what God made. This is still going on, and it’s a never-ending process that reveals more of God’s reflection every day–and more of God’s goodness. Can we ever know everything there is to know about God? We’ve still got work to do!
