From the September 1915 issue of The Christian Science Journal

WHEN Jesus declared that "a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth," he gave utterance to a truth which strikes at the very root of the belief as to what makes life harmonious and desirable. According to mortal man's estimate of the relative value of things, it is a fact too apparent even to be questioned, that without at least a modicum of earthly possessions life would scarcely be worth living.
