May 16-22: “Soul and Body..
Golden Text: ” . O God, who is like unto thee! . . . My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.” (Psalms 71:19, 23)
This Bible Lesson reminds us of the every-day opportunity to renew, refresh and joyfully acknowledge the “spiritual sense” we all have, “the conscious, constant capacity to understand God.” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, p.209: 31-32.)
“Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths… Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth. O keep my soul, and deliver me:” Psalms 25: 1, 4, 5, 10, 13, 20)
“The Science of being reveals man as perfect, even as the Father is perfect, because the Soul, or Mind, of the spiritual man is God, the divine Principle of all being, and because this real man is governed by Soul instead of sense, by the law of Spirit, not by the so-called laws of matter.” (S&H, p. 302:19)
