CHANGELESS VALUE AND IDENTITY

As one Christian Scientist endeavored to understand the changeless value and identity of man, a picture came to mind of a small boy who once had been given several small coins as a reward for weeding a garden. In the excitement of his new wealth and his intent outlining of how he could spend the coins at a local candy shop, he lost the coins before being able to use them. Some time later he found them in the grass and dirt, corroded and weathered—still pennies, their value unchanged by corrosion.

Even as the value and identity of the penny were not changed, so the value and identity of man as God's image and likeness have never been changed by so-called material conditions.
