This week our Bible Lesson is on Truth. The Golden Text is very familiar to Christian Scientists as it is posted on the wall of many of our churches. "Ye shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free". In the first section we start right off with an experience Moses had where he comes upon a strange sight. He sees a bush burning but not being consumed by that fire. When he moves closer to investigate, God speaks to him. I love what He says...take off your shoes, for right where you are standing is holy ground. Moses might have looked around at that desolate hillside wondering what in the world God meant but he just obeyed.

As you move through your day today remember that lesson, right where you are standing is holy ground. Why? Because right there you are in the presence and under the protection of God, who fills all space and is always present. That means at home, on the road, in the office, at school, doing your errands, at the movies, taking a morning run, no matter where you are, you are on holy ground.

This is your promise from God, a promise of protection and freedom. Pause today and think about that wonderful promise. Feel free to take off your shoes, shake off the dust of your travels and be at one with your Father Mother God. Feels good, doesn't it!
