“Let us be faithful in pointing the way through Christ, as we understand it, but let us also be careful always to ‘judge righteous judgment,’ and never to condemn rashly.” (Science and Health, page 444)
We have a great gift to share. We have the understanding of God as All, as good, and as Love. We have been informed that we are all the sons of God, that because of this we are able to transcend material sense, and be set free to be free. We can’t hold this fact back or be timid about sharing the healing truth with others.
But, we must also be careful that we don’t presume that another is not naturally privy to the good news as he is hearing it. We have to be as ready to listen as to talk, to be receptive to others and their views, whether they seem to match ours or not. Every idea of God is precious. Each one has been given the truth inherently, is being attended to every moment by his Father-Mother, and so is discovering what is right and true for him. We need not claim responsibility for bringing another the Truth, or deciding the time and way that they must live and prove it.
We can also be discerners and not judgers. We can see beyond appearances and assumptions to the true, complete, good man that we are so excited to be coming to know. We should be thankful that every day we are being given the opportunity to recognize God’s man everywhere because that man is the only man there really is. Judging and condemning is not a part of our mission. Our mission is to love.
