Demonstrating the Truth Where We Are

[Written Especially for Young People]

The parable of the good Samaritan, found in Luke's Gospel, is familiar to most of us. It will be remembered that a certain man journeying to Jericho fell among thieves who stripped him of his raiment and left him half dead. The priest and Levite passed by on the other side, but the good Samaritan "as he journeyed, came where he was."

Sometimes boys and girls, in the swirl of school activities, are liable to regard Christian Science as remote. When problems arise they may become fearful and confused and for the time being unable to think clearly, or to apply the truths which they have learned in the Sunday school. A study of the aforementioned parable should be a helpful reminder to all young Christian Scientists as to how practically and confidently to apply the truths they have learned to their human need at the very moment such need arises; indeed it reveals to them the fact that the truth is always where they are, and that they are always where Truth is.
