Seeking the True Sense of Things

[Written Especially for Young People]

Young people are often perplexed by conflicting human opinions in regard to world affairs, opinions induced often by selfishness, greed, dishonesty. Like Job, they turn from the contemplation of this state of affairs to cry, "Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his seat!" Mary Baker Eddy answers this longing on page 264 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," where she says, "Mortals must look beyond fading, finite forms, if they would gain the true sense of things."

Mortals have not yet by any means fully awakened to the need of looking beyond the realm of the physical senses for "the true sense of things." But the study of Christian Science will satisfy this need. Mrs. Eddy says (ibid., p. 129): "We must look deep into realism instead of accepting only the outward sense of things. Can we gather peaches from a pine-tree, or learn from discord the concord of being?" Christian Science teaches that God is omnipotent Principle, and that His laws are ever operating to guide, protect, and promote our well-being.
