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!

    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!

    I must say for the longest time I did not get why Abel’s offering was acceptable and Cain’s was not. Was God partial to a juicy leg of mutton vs Cain’s harvest bounty? No, God clearly loved the brothers equally so the issue must be with the offeror and not the offering itself. Cain made his with the wrong motive in his heart and rather than take the correction and reconcile himself, Cain took offense and lashed out in a fit of covetousness and jealousy at his brother. Great lesson for all.

    I was pondering this same thought morning as well. What had to be the state of mind for men to “straightway” and “immediately” leave the only livelihoods they’ve known ,their families and homes to follow Jesus without a thought of self? I was asking myself, “Would I, could I do it?-Would I be worthy to be called and if not – why not? Fear would most likely be my deterrent which is a clear indication that I’ve got a way’s to go to not be so “of” this world. Mary Baker Eddy was called and it was never an easy path but she persisted.
