No Running Away

[Of Special Interest to Youth]

Your particular temptation to run away may never have been so strong that you have actually packed up your belongings and started to leave home. Yet whenever you have disobeyed some rule at school or at home, haven't you been attempting to run away from the demands of good? Whenever you have left unfinished some disagreeable task, haven't you been refusing to learn to love? Whenever you have asked a friend cleverer than yourself, an older brother or sister, your mother or father, to prepare some school homework for you, haven't you been believing that you lacked the intelligence which is really your own heritage as a child of God?

All these situations were really challenges to you not to run away, but to learn to stand steadfastly and think through the problem before you.
