Are you the only practicing student of Christian Science in your family, or in whatever community you happen to occupy? If so, fear not. It’s a wonderful opportunity to let your light shine and bless those around you with a higher understanding of God.
The fact that you are one person, and those around you are many, is irrelevant. Jesus was one person, and there were many around him with conflicting views, opposing opinions, outlandish beliefs, and fearful outlooks. But Jesus was not afraid of them, nor did he mentally run from them. He went to them and loved them in ways that they understood and could relate to.
Your family members can benefit from your understanding of God. Understanding the truth about God builds bridges, finds common ground, brings out the good, and unites many into one.
How you impart your understanding of God may vary according to the circumstances you are in. If verbal expressions of truth are not met with receptivity, then use the silent method of sharing. Know that every family member is a child of God, reflecting the same Mind of God that you do. This Mind of God is filled with spiritual truth that resonates with everyone. Each family member has spiritual mindedness to hear truthful ideas coming from God, just like you do. As children of God, they are tuned into the one Mind and hearing God’s direction too. Trust God to give them progressive ideas in ways that make sense to them.
Have no fear of being the only practicing Christian Scientist in your neighborhood. See it as a blessing for you and others around you. You have something special that can bring them great benefit. Be sure to share it freely!
It requires humility and meekness to listen for the best way to share with others. But that’s okay. We can never have too much humility and meekness. The calm, composed, honest heart finds ways to share that work, and patience finds the right time to share when thought is open and ready to receive.
Have no fear of opposition. It’s illusion, an opportunity begging for a right understanding of God to surface and dissolve it.
Patiently and humbly listen for the voice of wisdom to lead you, and you’ll find the right kind of opportunity to voice what you know is right, and help others understand it too.
Thought united with Truth is always the dominant position.
