WHO IS BOSS IN YOUR HOUSE?

[Of Special Interest to Children]

Just as soon as John had learned to sit up on a chair by himself, he started going to a Christian Science Sunday School. There he learned to know God as Love, and he began to understand that very important First Commandment (Ex. 20:3), "Thou shalt have no other gods before me," and the beatitude (Matt. 5:5), "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth."

All the same, one day when he was about five, John seemed to forget. He started behaving very strangely. He shouted at his mother and stamped his feet. He would not do what she asked him to do, but did all the most dreadful things he could think of. His mother tried very hard to remember that only God's perfect, loving child was really there, and she reminded herself (for John no longer wanted to listen) of Mary Baker Eddy's words in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 192), "The good you do and embody gives you the only power obtainable."
