Choosing the Right Way

If first things are put first and the infinite divine Mind, God, is accepted as the source of one's information and understanding, misunderstandings and problems, regardless of their nature and degree, may be resolved in the one and only right way: by knowing God as He really is, and man as he really is in his relationship to Him.

God revealed Himself to Moses in unmistakable terms. "God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you."

Hence the importance of putting God first and knowing that the infinite divine Mind and its idea is all that really exists.
