Sunday School Notes and Comments
The "first lessons" (Church Manual by Mary Baker Eddy, Art. XX, Sect. 3) may be regarded as "first," because they form the foundation for all the other lessons and are important to one's progress in spiritual understanding. It is necessary, then, that all the pupils acquire this basis.
Several years ago, pupils in one of the older classes were asked to review very thoroughly, in connection with the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly, the Commandments, the Lord's Prayer, and the Sermon on the Mount. This was done, and all gained more practical knowledge of these "first lessons."
In the older classes, the moral and spiritual signification of the "first lessons" should be emphasized, and also their practical value in daily life. In my own experience I know that I was able to do some of my best healing work while I was studying the First Commandment.
