‘Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thy self.’ It should be thoroughly understood that all men have one Mind, one God and Father, one Life, Truth, and Love. Mankind will become perfect in proportion as this fact becomes apparent, war will cease and the true brotherhood of man will be established.
Mary Baker Eddy
One constant thread that pulled things together was the love of God that my parents had given me. This love stayed with me and sustained me when I was on my own and gave me something to hang on to when everything else was in flux.
Being convinced of God’s supremacy and loving it helped me recognize the universal nature of God’s family. We really are all the children of God, no matter what our background might be. Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of this newspaper, recognized that seeing our unity with God would do much to stabilize our relationships. She wrote in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, “With one Father, even God, the whole family of man would be brethren ….” (pp. 469-470).
Starting from this standpoint, we see that we always fit in God’s family, whether we’re new on the scene or long established. This has always been a great comfort to me.
I love thinking of us ALL as “accepted in the beloved.”
To me, this means that we are accepted wherever we are, because we’re all the loved children of God and He is ever present. Understanding this melts away anxiety and nervousness through the warmth of God’s love. God makes us accepted, lovable, and loving. As we acknowledge God’s supremacy, and the ever-presence of the kingdom of heaven, we’ll experience more of heaven in our relationships.
