Our Bible Lesson

[Of Special Interest to Youth]

"Every time I study my Lesson in the morning, everything goes along smoothly for me all day; I catch the bus easily and I get along well at school." So spoke one of the girls in a Christian Science Sunday School class. Another said that she had recently discovered that great joy and progress are to be experienced from rising early every morning and studying the entire six sections of the Bible Lesson. All of them seemed to be conscious of a difference in their day when time had been given spiritually to prepare for it.

Our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, writes in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 274), "Dear reader, right thinking, right feeling, and right acting—honesty, purity, unselfishness—in youth tend to success, intellectuality, and happiness in manhood." Boys and girls today are going to be called upon to make important decisions and take big responsibilities in a few years. They must be ready. It is spiritual understanding which makes it possible to think and act rightly, to be honest, pure, and unselfish. They must learn to put first things first, and among the first things must be the daily study of the Lesson-Sermon.
