What would be good ideas to think about when students discuss diseases and material things?

From the February 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Many people at my school are very into disease and material things. What would be good ideas to think about when they are discussing these subjects? 
—A sunday school student in Washington, US

A1: Before you start your day, it may be fun to begin by knowing that you’re actually going through God’s day, and that only He can be expressed. Whatever confidence or trust you do have in God, let that shine out like a light, trusting that you truly are serving to clear the atmosphere of thought. 

If everyone in your school was talking about how two plus two recently became seven, would you believe them? Nope. You wouldn’t start to worry or become confused. Likewise, you can stay calm and clear with the fact that God’s work is secure, already made perfect.
