KNOWING THE TRUTH

[Of Special Interest to Children]

Alice was a little girl nine years old. She had just been enrolled in the Christian Science Sunday School, and she liked it very much, although this was only her second Sunday in the class. All the children looked so happy and sang the hymns so joyously and listened to their teachers with such interest that Alice couldn't help being happy and interested too! Especially did she enjoy hearing about Mary Baker Eddy. In the Sunday School lending library was a red book all about Mrs. Eddy (A Child's Life of Mary Baker Eddy by Ella H. Hay), which had been especially written for children, and this book Alice had borrowed the Sunday before and read during the week so that she might know more about our Leader.

Now, Alice knew that Jesus had healed sickness, and that we should be able to do so also, for she had read in the Bible Jesus' own words (John 14:12), "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also." The other little girls in the class had healed themselves through their understanding of Christian Science, and they loved to tell of their healings. When Alice asked how they had been able to do such things, they always said, "Oh, we knew the truth!"
