What God wants

People who love God want to do what He wants them to do. But what does He want? Sometimes in great earnestness or even desperation we turn to Him and pray, "Father, what would You have me do? I'll follow whatever path You lay out for me."

Such humble willingness to yield to His will often indicates a state of thought that is receptive to good. But this is only a modest beginning if we expect to truly yield to Him. Christian Science teaches us what God wants of us in every instance. He wants—in fact, by His very nature He absolutely requires—perfection. Nothing more. Nothing less.
