Echoes from a Sunday School

A Child when asked how old she was replied, "No years, God is my Father and He doesn't have any birthday." Surely if we accept Jesus' definition of Life, "This is life, . . . that they might know thee the only true God," then we are "alive" only in so far as we "know God," well enough to reflect naught but good in every thought, word, and deed; so the mere lapse of time, or birthdays, will never make us "grow up."

This new-old standard of Christian Science accords respect and reverence, next to that for "our elder brother," only to those who know God as man's only Father in such a practical way that they bring forth the fruits of character, spiritual discernment, and the Christ-likeness which heals the sick and sorrowful as well as the sinner. "Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ."
