[Written Especially for Young People]
ON page 259 of "Science and Health with Keys to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy states of man that he is not "an isolated, solitary idea, for he represents infinite Mind, the sum of all substance." It is inconceivable that any of God's children could be lonely, friendless, or isolated, for such state would imply that man could be separated from God.
Young people who are following the light of Christian Science may sometimes think that they have little or nothing in common with others of their own age who are not Christian Scientists, and they may feel that social contact with such as these can bring no benefit to their spiritual growth. This attitude is not be accepted, because the right sense of good fellowship with its attendant and valuable lessons of humility, unselfishness, co-operation, group spirit, and sportsmanship springs from an infinite, impartial source and belongs rightfully in the experience of everyone. Undoubtedly, however, there will arise the necessity of sifting the chaff of a merely frivolous, unprofitable, and harmful sense of personal association from the wheat of the true, or spiritual idea of companionship.
The argument that because one has turned his gaze Spiritward he will have difficulty in finding congenial friends must be silenced, for by taking a stand for Truth one cannot lose anything real and good, nor be deprived of any legitimate joy and benefit. "In thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." These Scriptural words are demonstrably true.
