Sunday School Notes and Comments

The True Incentive

A new teacher entered upon her duties in the Christian Science Sunday School with diffidence. She was very fond of children, but she had had no teaching experience, and she doubted her ability to expound the truths of Christian Science.

The class allotted to her was made up of children of six or seven years of age, and although every week the teacher tried faithfully to do her preparatory work, they were unresponsive, uninterested, fidgety, and even unruly, and an overwhelming sense of failure took possession of her. In her trouble she went to a friend, who listened to all she had to say, and then remarked: "You know, there's one great thing the Sunday school children need, and that is love. That's what they come for. Love the children, and you'll find everything else will come." And then she went on to talk of other things.
