"THE DEAR CHILDREN'S TOY"

In speaking of Christian Science on page 252 of "Miscellaneous Writings," Mary Baker Eddy says, "It is the dear children's toy and strong tower." This can be of much comfort to us when our children are small. All Christian Science mothers look upon this teaching as their children's strong tower, as a protection from accidents, disease, and danger, but not so often do they regard it also as the "children's toy."

A mother's understanding of Christian Science and a child's receptivity to it will supply the necessary sense of contented and satisfactory activity. Children are, in reality, spiritual beings, complete in divine Mind and including all ideas necessary to the expression of their completeness. They are satisfied as reflections of Soul, animated by Spirit, and inspired by divine Love. Man is not a small, helpless mortal, dependent for his happiness, activity, and contentment upon a person, place, or thing, but the perfect idea of Mind. God is his Father-Mother; he dwells forever in his Father's house, supplied with everything necessary to his happiness.
