OBEYING THE VOICE
[Of Special Interest to Children]
When John was nine years old, he went to live in the home of some Christian Scientists. Until that time he had been left pretty much to do as he liked. Nobody seemed to care where he was or how he spent his time when not at school, so long as they were not troubled by him.
In his new home love abounded, but at first he did not respond to the love shown him, but would turn away, almost afraid of a kindly touch. To John it seemed just as easy not to speak the truth as to tell the truth; he did not know the great difference between honesty and dishonesty.
Then he was taken to a Christian Science Sunday School, where he was taught that "God is love" (I John 4:8) and that as we ourselves are loving and kind we are expressing God. He was also taught that God is Truth, and therefore he could express or reflect God by being truthful. John was happy in his Sunday School class, and soon he was in possession of his own Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. These he would read before going to school each morning, and he began to read the Lesson-Sermon as given in the Christian Science Quarterly.
