SEEKING HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS

Christian Science reveals man's relationship to the Father as a spiritual idea, one with Mind, its creator. To establish this in human consciousness as a demonstrable truth requires the overcoming of the temptations of the world, the flesh, and the devil. Some students of Science, having been awakened through great suffering, advance quickly in their understanding because they readily see the undesirability, therefore the unreality, of evil's claims. They are thus prepared to accept the understanding of good which heals and regenerates. Others, owing to certain tenacious mortal mind beliefs, such as self-will, self-justification, and self-righteousness, cling to some error or belief which to them seems desirable or necessary.

But when the human consciousness yields to the divine, the command, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness" (Matt. 6:33), takes on a higher meaning. Sometimes the error which has seemed to delay spiritual progress is the inclination to define righteousness according to one's own personal ideals, preferences, or limitations rather than to recognize it as complete uprightness.
