[Of Special Interest to Children]

Marion and Florence were spending their vacation with a friend at her summer home in the country. Both little girls were pupils in a Christian Science Sunday School, where they had learned that every good thing comes from God, that they should love Him and always be grateful for all His goodness, and that they should also love all His children.

Each day their friend read to them from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. The passages which she read were from the Lesson-Sermon for that week in the Christian Science Quarterly. Some of the Bible references told of King Solomon, who was very wise and had had a beautiful temple built where he and his people might worship God:

As these little girls thought of the many stones in the walls of King Solomon's temple and how they all had to be fitted together so perfectly, they began to see that everyone who is trying to be good and kind and loving is really building a temple too, a temple for God in his own thought. So each morning they made an eager search for new stones to put into the temples which they were beginning to build.
