[Written Especially for Young People]


Most young people, if they were asked what they wanted in life, would reply, in substance, that they desired success. Success may have a different meaning, however, to different persons, but to succeed in any line of human endeavor one must possess certain qualifications. Chief among these qualifications are industry, honesty, and perseverance.

Christian Science enables its earnest students to gain these necessary qualifications. It explains the true nature of God and man, and man's relation to God. It shows how error seems to work to keep one from gaining the requisite qualifications for success; and it shows also vanquish error.

Opposed to the qualifications for success are such false qualities as selfishness, laziness, and dishonesty. Christian Science enables one to rise above the false consciousness in which these obstacles to success seem to abide. It is these false beliefs, and others, which keep one from happiness. Certainly everyone wants to be happy; and the demonstration of unselfishness, industry, and honesty brings a joy that is priceless.
