Proving All Things

This is the age of demonstration. Never has there been a greater demand for results; never have mortals been less satisfied with promises. Theories which appear reasonable and consistent may satisfy for the immediate present, but unless results are forthcoming, theories are not long adhered to. The tendency is to judge everything by what is accomplished. It may be that the demand for things practical has inclined thought toward the material, since to human thought the material seems more tangible, hence more susceptible of application. This is because spiritual things have been regarded more in a theoretical way, and it has been quite generally considered that they were not so vitally essential to success in the affairs of this world.

Since the discovery of Christian Science thousands have been made to see that the unseen things of Spirit are not only tangible, but that they are essential to health, happiness, and success. In other words, it is becoming apparent that spiritual understanding is the foundation of good health, true happiness, and enduring success. It is also becoming apparent that to seek first "the kingdom of God, and his righteousness," is to gain the consciousness of good which material sense can neither give nor take away.
