Sept. 13-19: “Matter.”
Golden Text: “Stand up, shake the dust off yourself!” (Isaiah 52:2)
This Bible Lesson urges us to be vigorous and determined to “shake off” the dust of mortal thinking, and to strengthen our trust in God, Spirit, as All-in-all.O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain;
“O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!” (Isaiah 40:9)
“God has built a higher platform of human rights, and He has built it on diviner claims. These claims are not made through code or creed, but in demonstration of “on earth peace, good-will toward men.” Human codes, scholastic theology, material medicine and hygiene, fetter faith and spiritual understanding. Divine Science rends asunder these fetters, and man’s birthright of sole allegiance to his Maker asserts itself.” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 226:14)
