One Size Fits All
July 16, 2012
Normally, that’s not really true. Certainly when it comes to things, it’s not true. My husband and I can’t wear the same clothes. The house I grew up in would have been too small for his family. The bag of fertilizer I put on my lawn will not cover even a fraction of the golf course around the corner.
But it is true when it comes to Love – another name for God. God’s Love is large enough and full enough and safe enough and sure enough for everyone. No matter what. And there’s always enough to go around, every time. This is not just hopefulness, this is an actual law. A law Jesus used to feed multitudes, heal the sick, and raise the dead. It never failed Jesus!
A great explanation is found in Science and Health. The author, Mary Baker Eddy, writes: “The depth, breadth, height, might, majesty, and glory of infinite Love fill all space. That is enough!” (see page 520)
Think about it. Which dimension is left out of that statement? Which need is uncovered? As the Psalmist asks, “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?” (see Ps. 139)
God is ever present. Love is omnipotent. Spirit is all-knowing and all acting. Truly, that is enough! It will never fail you either.
