The Sunlight of Joy

Mrs. Eddy writes in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 236): "Parents should teach their children at the earliest possible period the truths of health and holiness. Children are more tractable than adults, and learn more readily to love the simple verities that will make them happy and good." As parents are obedient to these instructions they are quickly repaid in the child's manifest receptivity to good; and the seeds of Truth and Love thus early sown in the child's thought soon sprout and become swift messengers of healing.

Who, in close association with these little ones, has not often felt the Christly touch of love, and many times experienced complete healing through their pure and simple faith expressed in childlike terms? The following incident brought home such a beautiful lesson that it is passed on, hoping it may bring to others the inspiration it brought the writer.
