God First

ONCE a student, young in the study of Christian Science, went for the first time to the office of a Christian Science practitioner, where she was obliged to wait for a while in the reception room. Looking about her with interest, and with considerable inquiry, she saw on the opposite wall a small framed motto of two words—"God first."

She studied it intently and fell to wondering what those two words meant. She believed in God and in His power, or she would not be turning to Him then; but in what way, she asked herself, did she, over and above all else, regard God first? Yet, when she came into the practitioner's Private room she refrained from inquiring, for she had came to the conclusion that she should work out the answer for herself.
