God's Help Needed

[Written Especially for Young People]

A MODERN translator gives the thirtieth verse of the twenty-second chapter of II Samuel thus: "By thy help I can face a troop, by God's help I can leap a wall." We hope that none of us will be called upon to face a troop of soldiers, but all boys and girls, men and women, face troops of another kind daily.

These troops are made up of the lies of so-called mortal mind, false fears and temptations. Generally, even the young student of Christian Science recognizes sickness as an enemy to be overcome. If wise, when faced by this enemy he obeys Mrs. Eddy's counsel in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 417): "Maintain the facts of Christian Science,—that Spirit is God, and therefore cannot be sick; that what is termed matter cannot be sick; that all causation is Mind, acting through spiritual law. Then hold your ground with the unshaken understanding of Truth and Love, and you will win."
