“Moms and dads don’t last forever. If you’ve got unfinished business, we need to face that, and that’s not easy,” she said. “Every child wants to love their mother and their father. Love is the most important thing, and when they feel rejected and unloved that hole can never be filled by anyone else.”
“Our Father-Mother God”
From the September 22, 1917 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel
What though the world looks coldly on, judging its own unrighteous judgment? “I like babies, but they must be clean ones,” said that one who had loved little. “I like people, but they must be good ones,” says the world today, drawing its skirts aside. Love, however, knows no mortal classification. God does not divide His children into good ones and bad ones, those which are clean now and those which will be clean after a while. In God’s sight all His children are as spiritual and spotless now as they ever will be, and His children have no impurities to be washed away. St. John writes: “If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.”
Let us try to see as God sees, for that is the only true apprehension. Let us not turn away from our brother just because he comes to us dusty and travel stained from the day’s journey. Let us encourage him, and give him our hand, even if his own should yet happen to bear the marks of the day’s toil. With that clearness of spiritual perception which enables us to hold to the truth in the very face of any material evidence which may clamor for recognition, let us see him as God’s idea ever is, not as he seems to be to mortal sense. Does the world still maintain its old attitude, — “I will love him later on, when the mud is washed away”? “Be of good cheer,” said Christ Jesus, “I have overcome the world.” In Isaiah the question is asked if a mother can ever forget her child or cease to have compassion on him. To this the divine Parent answers. “Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.”
There is nothing inside that’s mine.
