[Original article in German]

"Seek ye first the kingdom of God"

In his understanding of helpful love, Christ Jesus said to hearts filled with anxiety: "Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?" Would not one like to bring these words to-day before all despairing ones, suffering from fear and doubt, lack and sorrow? But would they believe them? And if not, what would hold them back? Ignorance of the living and true God. Men blindly submit to the domination of dead idols created by human belief, and are ever according power to them.

The words which Christ Jesus uttered over nineteen centuries ago have lost nothing of their value. To-day, Christian Science comes and proffers its help to the weary and heavy-laden in order to lead them to the understanding of life eternal, so that they may become free from sorrow, tribulation, fear, and anxiety. It says, "Let there be light." It reveals true Being, the only real habitation of man, the child of God. It unfolds the truth about the one creator, God, and shows Him to be, not the manlike God of the children of this world, but the God whom Mrs. Eddy defines in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 465) as "incorporeal, divine, supreme, infinite Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, Love."
