Our Right Place

[Written Especially for Children]

Promotion time was drawing near in school. A little girl who had every reason to expect promotion because all through the term her reports had shown a good percentage and steady application, became aware of the fact that many of the children were requesting that they be sent on to a teacher who was a great favorite in the school.

Now, there were two classes in the next grade, one of which was taught by a woman who was acknowledged by all to be a good teacher. But among the children stories had been circulated that she was very strict. The other was regarded as a lovely teacher who was always bright and jolly.

This little girl attended a Christian Science Sunday School, and because of what she learned there and because of the love through which problems were solved in her home every day, she saw that she could not ask to go into the class of the teacher who was so popular, and where it seemed all her little friends would be going.
