IT was during the morning "rush hour." Automobiles were moving fast in both directions; street cars were appearing at frequent intervals, filled with passengers on their way to business. To cross the street in the midst of all this traffic seemed an impossibility. A group of little children on their way to school stood at the curb waiting for an opportunity to pass to the other side. They did not seem disturbed at the seeming impossibility of crossing the street, but waited patiently for a moment or two at the corner. Presently a police officer appeared and, clasping the hand of the little girl nearest him, led the children safely to the other side. After thanking the officer, they proceeded on their way. Such childlike trust and confidence was urged by Jesus as necessary to win the kingdom of heaven, harmony. He said, "Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven."

Jesus came representing the law of God, the law of universal good, of Love, Truth, and Life, the law of divine Principle. Thus, he spoke "as one having authority;" and that is why his words are as potent to-day as they were when he walked the shores of Galilee. Jesus came preaching and demonstrating the ever-presence of God and showing that the only way to health, happiness, peace, and success, the only way to establish the kingdom of heaven on earth, is through attaining that state of consciousness which reflects "quietness and assurance for ever." This state of consciousness is reached by an understanding of the true nature of God, man, and the universe.
