"THEY NEED NOT DEPART"

In the Gospel of Matthew we read (14: 15,16): "And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals. But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat." Jesus' words may be construed as a sacred command to all his followers to know that there is no place where divine Love is not. In the desert of material beliefs of war, fear, lack, sin, and disease there is help at hand if we turn in prayer to our heavenly Father-Mother God.

If someone says, "This disease is of such long duration that there is no help for me; it is too late now," let the sufferer learn, as the multitude did, that he need not depart to find help, or God. If he is tempted to turn to material means, to "buy victuals," such as drugs or any material so-called aids, let him know that in reality man is complete now, not needing unintelligent matter to give him a lift over any belief of discord, be it physical or mental. Mary Baker Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 453), "A Christian Scientist's medicine is Mind, the divine Truth that makes man free."
