In one way or another mortal, material sense is always arguing for incompleteness in order to foist goods of its own making upon unsuspecting individuals who are not steadfast in their knowledge of spiritual facts. Its arguments are subtle: it says, "I cannot complete this task;" "I cannot complete payments on my home;" "I cannot complete my education;" "I am not complete master of my thoughts;" "I need glasses to complete my vision;" "I need medicine to complete my recovery of health;" "I need persons to complete my business;" or, "I need a companion to complete my happiness."

Alert students of Christian Science are learning, through the study of their textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, not to fall a prey to these suggestions, but steadfastly to recognize that man made in the image and likeness of God is perfect and complete, eternally satisfied through the spiritual ability and vigor imparted to him by divine Mind, his originating cause.
