Spiritual Understanding Is Supply

[Of Special Interest to Children]

A Little girl came home from school one day bubbling over with joy. She was so happy that she could hardly wait to tell her mother the good news. The music teacher had told the class that morning that those who wished to take lessons on an instrument could do so, and that if they could provide their own instrument the lessons would be free. "So, Mother," said the little girl, "all I need now is a violin." Later that evening the little girl approached her father, asking him if he would get her a violin and telling him of the opportunity.

His only answer was, "Why, honey, a violin is the last thing we need around here." This was during the depression, and the child, having been answered in this way about other things, just kept her counsel and went to her room, not to pine or cry, but to talk to God about the situation, as she had been taught to do in the Christian Science Sunday School.
