[Written Especially for Young People]

On Being Different

In studying the Bible, we find several statements that the chosen of God are a "peculiar people." We read the command, "Come out from among them, and be ye separate," and the admonition to keep ourselves "unspotted from the world." To the young Christian Scientist, this counsel might seem to indicate that the study of Christian Science will in some way set him apart from his associates, and he perhaps wonders whether it might not require him to give up his interest in sports and his pleasant human relationships with his friends.

As he attends a Christian Science Sunday School and subsequently continues his study of Christian Science, he will find that he need not give up any of his wholesome pleasures or his congenial friends. Instead, he will enter with a new zest into the genuinely good times that come his way. He will widen his circle of friends, and in this human intercourse will both give and gain more than ever before.
