Putting First Things First

In a sermon called "Christian Healing" Mary Baker Eddy has said (p. 19), "Tireless Being, patient of man's procrastination, affords him fresh opportunities every hour; but if Science makes a more spiritual demand, bidding man go up higher, he is impatient perhaps, or doubts the feasibility of the demand."

The demand is now being made by Science. In the exigencies of the times it asks a complete and permanent turning to God, a need which could not be more imperative than it is. Yet with stubborn determination the human mind seeks safety and happiness in matter rather than in Spirit. This blindness of mortals to the outstretched arms of divine Love is the result of belief in the reality of matter and its false pleasures.
