The Cardboard Carrot

[Of Special Interest to Young Men and Women]

Have you ever thought: "Where am I going? Where am I being led? Whose leadership am I following?" In Proverbs we read (3:5, 6): "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."

A Christian Scientist understands what Jesus meant when he said (John 6:63), "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing." On the college campus, as everywhere else, this fact needs to lie understood and experienced. We must not look to a sense of understanding apart from God, but rather to understanding derived from Him. The lies of sensation or of substance in matter must be eliminated by the full and proper understanding of God as All. Thus we let God lead us, and we go only in the paths of His choosing.
