When you see horrible things happen in the world, resist any temptation to stand aghast at the evil and allow yourself to get demoralized or depressed. Treat the evil with spiritual truth and make a positive difference!
The collective human experience is the effect of collective human belief. If something is wrong in that experience, it can be improved, corrected and reformed with a higher understanding of spiritual reality.
Evil is not a fixed condition. It is temporal, a lie parading as a reality, and it can be defeated and replaced with the power and presence of God’s goodness.
No matter how awful the evil before us appears, it can be overturned. But we can’t just sit still and do nothing for change to happen. Evil occurrences are calls to action on our practice of Christian Science to do something helpful—to address the evil, to correct it and to demonstrate God in control.
So, next time you see an injustice on TV, in the neighborhood or through some other news outlet, exercise your spiritual dominion over that lie by addressing it with spiritual truth. You can make a difference. You can improve those circumstances with your prayers.
The effect of truth understood, is far-reaching. You can help people in distress in faraway places. You can help make the world a better place for everyone.
“I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them….This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth” I Timothy 2:1,3,4, NLT.
