God Multiplies Us

I know I need to write more here. I really enjoyed writing almost daily back in May. But I was concerned that I'd become repetitive, or so esoteric as to sound foolish to new readers. When writing about Spiritual Healing one must be circumspect, in order not to be a target for ridicule. I have been blessed on this blog so far in that there have been no negative comments.

In the study of Christian Science it is the practice of serious students to read the Christian Science Lesson Sermon on Monday through Saturday. This lesson sermon is then read in all Churches of Christ, Scientist the following Sunday. The lesson is comprised of passages from the Bible and correlative passages from the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

This week's lesson sermon repeatedly mentions that God will multiply us. All week I've been thinking what a nice lesson this is for couples desiring or expecting children. But today this passage from Science and Health jumped out at me, "Divine Love blesses its own ideas, and causes them to multiply,--to manifest His power." (S&H 517:30)

So now I'm waiting on God to multiply me... to manifest more of His power; His Love, Truth, Mind, Life, and Spirit. And I hope he is multiplying you too.
