WELCOMING SPIRITUAL IDEAS

Perhaps no story in the Bible so tenderly touches the human heart as that which tells of Jesus and the little children. His love for their sweet trust and responsiveness, and his reproach to those wounding the child, is in accord with all natural feeling. To be kind to children is a lesson which the world knows by heart.

One of the helpful things that Mrs. Eddy has taught us in Christian Science is to interpret the Bible spiritually; and thus we may apply its profound lessons to the daily purifying of our thought. The story of Jesus' receiving the little ones teaches us to give a kindly welcome to every idea of Truth,—every thought which unfolds to us the things of God. This gracious, childlike reception of good on our part is our entering upon the way which leads to heaven; for Jesus said, "Except ye turn, and become as little children, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven" (Revised Version).
