The mastery of a situation is gained through a true sense of the values involved, and that wisdom which is "the principal thing," which is removed from all perplexity and doubt and which gives poise of mind and certainty of action, is this understanding of values. The teachings of Jesus iterate and reiterate this truth, and abound with instructions as to how to determine true values and as to what are the really valuable and substantial things. There is nothing in the operation of Christian Science which goes farther toward convincing its faithful students that it is the truth and wisdom of the Mind that was in Christ Jesus, that the enlightenment which it brings in this very direction, and the ability which it gives to determine relative values, not as matters of opinion, but accurately and scientifically.

Jesus said, "What is man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" Science and Health (p. 477) defines Soul as "the substance, Life, and intelligence of man." Jesus again taught that life is the understanding of God. Thus the inspired declaration is plain that the whole material world is too small a price to accept in exchange for that which alone is life, the understanding of God, Truth. How little do men realize this wisdom when they accept, with thanks, the most pitifully worthless fragments of this world as payment in full for the giving up of that which is theirs.
