Putting God First

The lines were long, the tempers short. It was late afternoon on a hot, fall day, the final registration day at the college where I was to obtain a bachelor's degree in a second field. For the third time I was trying to arrange my classes so that my weekly schedule could include all the Christian Science activities available to me.

As I stood in line, I recalled with great gratitude the four years of undergraduate studies I had completed. They were rich, rewarding years—academically and spiritually. They had left me with a deep desire to put God first in my life. Joshua's command to the Israelites had become my command, too: "Choose you this day whom ye will serve." Josh. 24:15; One way I had chosen to serve God—divine Truth, Life and Love—was by taking an active part in the Christian Science movement.
