The Way Out

Some years ago a student of Christian Science was asked to teach a class of boys in the Sunday school of the branch church of which she was a member. Grateful for the opportunity to serve thus, the student made careful preparation for the work by studying the pages of the Manual of The Mother Church pertaining to the Sunday school, as well as giving special attention to the Lesson-Sermon for the week, bearing especially in mind the thought of the need of young people. Although many prayers for guidance had gone forth to the heavenly Father, when the Sunday school hour arrived the student found to her dismay that the boys were apparently uninterested in the study of the truth. Mortal mind seemed rampant, with resultant inattention, irreverence, restlessness, and confusion.

For several weeks the preparatory work was continued, and the truth that there is but one Mind was resolutely declared; but there was no noticeable change in the mental atmosphere of the class. Not permitting discouragement to interfere with the needed demonstration, the student realized that there was a way out of this particular problem just as there is a way out of every inharmonious situation which presents itself; for had not Christ Jesus, the Way-shower, given this sweet assurance when he said, "And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you"?
