Cost-Benefit Studies & Life lessons from Sunday School

This week’s lesson is full of great Life lessons! Check out the webmet “How to Rise to the Occasion” (in the menu under “Show All Mets”) that shows ways to apply one of Mrs. Eddy’s gems (S&H571:16) to help in at least seven areas where your best is demanded. The cost of “know thyself” is modest (although not always easy) compared to the bountiful benefits that come in return. David tells us “forget not all his benefits” (Ps. 103:2-4, B7) and then reels them off: forgiving all our sins; healing all our diseases; redeeming our lives from destruction; and crowning us with lovingkindness and tender mercies. All these benefits should cost us something. As Mrs. Eddy puts it:
“Seek Truth, and pursue it. It should cost you something: you are willing to pay for error and receive nothing in return; but if you pay the price of Truth, you shall receive all.”
Misc. 342:24

Those mesmerized by the deceitful lusts of the world regard the 10 Commandments as 10 Restrictions on their liberties, and too high a cost to pay to obey. As a registered architect, I’ve always had a keen love for the 10 Commandments and see them as the 10 Specifications of “Spirit, the great architect,” (S&H 68:5) that when followed, guarantee man’s liberties. I hope you will find time to check out the pictographic webmets (In Metpage menu under “God’s Top Ten”) for the commandments featured in this week’s Responsive Reading and find practical ways to apply them to your relationships this week. The 6th and 9th commandments can be especially helpful in answering questions about how and why to overcome resentment. And the pictographic webmet on the 7th commandment touts the benefits of protecting purity as a most precious natural resource.
