In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures Mary Baker Eddy writes, “Infinite Mind creates and governs all, from the mental molecule to infinity. This divine Principle of all expresses Science and art throughout His creation, and the immortality of man and the universe.”
Further on we read, “God is individual, incorporeal. He is divine Principle, Love, the universal cause, the only creator, and there is no other self-existence. He is all-inclusive, and is reflected by all that is real and eternal and by nothing else. He fills all space, and it is impossible to conceive of such omnipresence and individuality except as infinite Spirit or Mind. Hence all is Spirit and spiritual.”
It’s easy to see the art of God, Spirit, as responsible for a beautiful sunrise, a mountain lake, or majestic peaks. And I can find the Science of God in the intricacies and magic of how things work. The exactness of mathematical calculation, the architecture of each solar system , and the botanical genius behind each plant and its seed.
But what about man? What about you and me? Where do we fit into the divine Creator and Its infinite scheme of things? Are we not also scientifically and beautifully created? And as such, are we not equally subject to the glorious precision, harmony and beauty of divine Love’s allness?
The answer to this question is “Yes!” And support for this affirmative response is found in Psalms 100, Verse 3 where David has just finished insistently encouraging us to celebrate our Father-Mother-child relationship with God. He exclaims, “Know ye that the Lord is God : it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves.”
