Treatment Ideas for January 4, 2021

By Julio C. Rivas, CS

Sacramental Loving and Living 
““In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord’s people. And they exceeded our expectations: They gave themselves first of all to the Lord, and then by the will of God also to us.” — 2 Corinthians‬ ‭8:2-5‬ ‭NIV‬‬
“The rich in spirit help the poor in one grand brotherhood, all having the same Principle, or Father; and blessed is that man who seeth his brother's need and supplieth it, seeking his own in another's good.” — M B Eddy 
“The young mother of small children had been abused and abandoned. She was unemployed, and barely surviving what seemed like one destructive life-hurricane after another. As I was praying for Love’s intelligent answers, I communicated her dire situation to a fellow Christian Science practitioner, who, in turn, did the same with other practitioner friends. Within a few days we were a team of Christly doers, praying and acting on Love’s sacramental generosity. After a few weeks we had helped her get a new start in a new city. She was now employed, in a safe neighborhood, and with plenty of opportunities for her children. We gave of our Love-wealth. And she went on to do the same in her new community. Love’s sacrament to us makes it possible for us to emit proliferating grace toward everyone.”
