The Father's House

[Written Especially for Young People]

It is granted that young people of today, on the whole, are well prepared to serve, and that they possess versatility and eager enthusiasm; but some may believe that, in spite of this, there is no place for them. Because of the trying economic conditions, many business men think it best to employ experienced assistants, and error, consistently limiting, claims that there are not enough positions even for these.

What comfort there is for the youth of today who have been led to search in Christian Science for the actual truth of position—what constitutes it, by what power it is governed, how it is available! This search leads thought away from fear, confusion, and the depressing atmosphere of mortal mind, into the confidence, clarity, and fullness of thoughts which reflect God, divine Mind, in whom man's life exists and unfolds.

In the eighty-fourth Psalm we read: "How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts! ... Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O Lord of hosts, my King, and my God. Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee." The Bible is full of declarations concerning man's dwelling place as being in God, showing the harmony of that abode, its riches, its security, and man's joyous realization of the Father's love, guidance, power, and provision. It was after the prodigal son had left his father's house, in ignorance of its perfect provision and complete satisfaction, that he began to experience the loss of these things.
