From the July 1914 issue of The Christian Science Journal

THE natural tendency of mortals is to seek after that which will give them pleasure or in some way add to their happiness; but reasoning from a wholly material basis, their treasure, present or prospective, is that which is pleasing to the human senses, and all too soon they find it infected, by moth or rust and hopelessly corrupted. Until mankind can look at life from a different standpoint and obey the behest of the master Christian to seek "first the kingdom of God," all efforts toward finding true happiness or even peace, must prove futile.
