"WHAT WE MOST NEED"

"What we most need is the prayer of fervent desire for growth in grace, expressed in patience, meekness, love, and good deeds." Mary Baker Eddy gives us these words in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 4). How many of us honestly and wholeheartedly agree with that striking admonition? Do we not often believe that what we most need is worldly goods, a successful career, the love of some particular person, or perhaps good health? Even if we do agree with this statement, how many of us can say that our lives show forth a constant and fervent desire for these virtues?

If we are prone to ask ourselves on the least provocation, "Why did this happen to me? What am I going to do now?" or, "Why haven't I been healed yet?" we must remember that what we most need is "patience, meekness, love, and good deeds." Jesus said (Matt. 6:53), "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
