Waiting on the Lord
[Written Especially for Young People]
The young person who has chosen Christian Science as the way of life has made a wise decision, for it offers the only real remedy for the adverse conditions which confront mankind today.
In one brief sentence on page 246 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy tells us of a falsity which claims to deprive youth and all mankind of their God-bestowed ability and power to express man's spiritual selfhood. "The measurement of life by solar years," she writes, "robs youth and gives ugliness to age." "Robs youth." The belief that man is material, and that intelligence, strength, and activity depend on the number of times the earth travels around the sun—this belief is the robber which claims to limit youth and to deplete and defeat those of riper years.
In human experience the time of youth is a sowing time, and young people need to watch lest they accept the thieving suggestion that they must engage in questionable practices and amusements before they settle down. A farmer who had been given a fertile field with which to earn a livelihood would be thought very foolish if he sowed it with weeds and wild oats for the first few years. Hours well spent in youth are like good seed sown on good soil. They bring forth an abundant and rich harvest, for "whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."
