One of the most familiar sayings of our beloved Master, and one frequently quoted by the Christian world, is found in John.
Prominent among mankind's plaints is unhappiness over environment.
The scientific acknowledgment of the presence, power, and infinite goodness of God under every circumstance in which we may find ourselves is true gratitude.
In "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany," under the heading "Christmas for the Children," our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, writes.
If only we would watch our thinking,Would think about the beautiful, the true,The good, the pure, the perfect, the enduring,Become enamored of the heavenly view,These precious things in thought could not be hidden,But they would manifest themselves in lifeAnd by the power in them deliverThe world from sickness, sorrow, strife!
It is the duty and blessed privilege of every Christian Science parent to gain the true concept of children as unfettered, unlimited ideas of God, ever in His loving care.
