Meeting Entrance Requirements

[For young adults]

In high school many of you are concerned with meeting requirements for entrance to the college of your choice. This dictates your selection of subjects and provides a stimulus for conscientious work.

Attention to college entrance requirements is certainly important. But if a Christian Scientist sets about seeking the kingdom of God—to fulfill the requirements leading to spiritual-mindedness —he will more easily meet human requirements and demands.

Moses told the Israelites, "What doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, to keep the commandments of the Lord, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?" Deut. 10:12, 13; This is the most important set of requirements anybody can try to meet. Obeying them brings the kingdom of God into human experience and supplies all our needs.
