Over All and Above All

THE desire to know God, good, is inherent in the hearts of men. Not always is it understood that the yearnings and the restlessness which besiege mortals at times reveal their sense of incompleteness, of imperfect realization of happiness and joy.

Men and women have accepted this longing, sad sense of something wanting as inevitable; and if judged by what is seen on the surface, it would seem that they must accept it. But is this really so? We read in Proverbs these words: "The path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day."

This perfect day of spiritual understanding will sooner or later dawn in our lives, never to disappear in darkness and sadness. The many references in Scripture to the perfectibility of man point to the fact that perfection is attainable and God-ordained. Christian Science shows us that mortal mind, expressing itself as matter and materiality, has within itself no constituents with which to construct perfection, for perfection implies indestructibility, and all mortal mind's fantasies are as dreams.
