Spring's Resurrecting Challenge

[Of Special Interest to Young People]

In the Song of Solomon (2:11, 12) we read, "For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come." What a glorious challenge an awakening spring is to mankind! The gardener accepts it and is busy pruning the useless wood from his shrubs, raking up litter, and digging out the weeds which have found root among his flowers. The fastidious housewife accepts it and starts to clean her home, replacing worn-out things with new.

Should not each one of us accept the challenge of spring as a reminder to clean our own mental dwellings, to supplant shabby, worn-out beliefs and practices with the ever new and vital ideas of Spirit? Tools and directions for this joyous task are always close at hand. They are in the Bible texts and their correlative passages from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, which are outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly Lesson-Sermons. An earnest student of Christian Science studies these Lessons daily. With the wisdom and understanding which the proper study of these books inspires, the student clears out that which is useless from his thinking.
