Holding Fast to Good
[Written Especially for Children]
Helen is a pupil in the third grade, and enjoys her schoolwork very much. Sometimes, however, she finds figures quite difficult, and is tempted to feel discouraged because her problems do not always come out right.
A short time ago her teacher gave her a problem to work on, quite a simple one to be sure, but one in which she must add, subtract, multiply, and divide. Helen worked diligently for a while, covering a large sheet of paper with figures, but for some reason she could not get the correct answer.
Finally, she allowed a thought of discouragement to conquer her, and just gave up. She knew that this was a wrong thing to do, because as a pupil in a Christian Science Sunday School she had learned that discouragement has no place in God's kingdom. But Helen felt that she had tried long enough. There must be something wrong, not with her own work, but with the figures which had been given her!
