Overcoming Worldliness

When sixteen, I came to New York to start in business, and had not been working long before several experiences brought me to the full realization that I would have to attain more than human goodness or human methods to overcome the worldliness and sensuality which was then in my way. I had known of Christian Science several years previous to my coming to New York, and believed thoroughly in its teachings, but I was evidently blind to the fact that I might use it in overcoming and destroying these worldly ways and be able truly to say, "I have no pleasure in them." I then resolved that there was but one way, and that the way Jesus taught and demonstrated. So, with this thought, I took my stand for Truth and with "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," I have been enabled to follow with a higher understanding the example which was set before us nineteen centuries ago.

It is needless to say that my desire for worldliness has diminished to such an extent that I feel I can honestly state the demonstration is being made daily.
