The Simplicity that is in Christ

IN reading over the Scriptural account of that simple event when Jesus took a little child and set him in the midst of his disciples, and said, "Except ye . . . become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven," the writer's heart overflowed with gratitude. The simple beauty of the statement held her, and its truth shone forth, greatly comforting her.

Like many eager students of Christian Science, the writer became very desirous of knowing the whole of Truth at once; and she began to worry. There seemed so much reading and studying to be done; problems seemed so hard, and the way so rugged, that the inexperienced traveler became bewildered, and felt as if caught in a maze of doubt and difficulty. Following upon this mental state came discouragement and depression, until it seemed as if she was in the perilous position of being halfway up a ladder, unable to go either up or down.
