Don’t withhold the right thought

Do not withhold good from those who deserve it


when it’s in your power to help them.


This quote caught my eye, not for the obvious wisdom it imparts, such as offering a helping hand to a friend in need, or giving temporary support to a neighbor having a tough time. But for the deeper metaphysical message it reveals.
Offering money, clothes, food, are one thing. But what about offering the right thought to those struggling with depression, loneliness, hopelessness, fear, and more? Our right thinking about them has power to help.
Jesus Christ offered right thoughts to people around him, and they were healed by those enlightened points of view. The man at the pool of Bethesda was cured of lameness by Jesus’ right thoughts about him.
Right thoughts come from God, and they are filled with spiritual power.
Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, healed many people by resting a right spiritual thought upon them.
When we look at our neighbor from a spiritual point of view, rather than entertaining a suffering mortal viewpoint, we are seeing them as God created them, and that right thinking helps them see the same, too.
The right thought we hear coming from God can become a right thought theyhear coming from God. And it helps them.
Give your neighbor a helping hand today. Think the right thought about them! It’s in your power to do so.

  1. The greatest love that one can express to the other is to recognize them as God’s image and likeness. Even to those who believe that prayer is of no help to them. And this is what I have to practice daily and not get discouraged if they don’t accept metaphysical prayer. This is the truth of every one. False beliefs can’t negate ever what’s true.

  2. A misunderstanding occurred with a friend of mine. Your message reminds me that the foundation of an apology or reconciliation is the right thought about each of us as children of God. Therefore we always exist in harmony with one another, any other point of view is error.

    Thanks Evan!!
