SIMPLICITY

Mark records that when the disciples rebuked those who were bringing little children to the Master to bless them, he said (10:14, 15): "Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein."

A friend told the writer that one winter her small grandson was living with her while his parents were away. One morning she noticed that he was manifesting the symptoms of a cold. Praying to say the right thing to him, she commenced to reason with him about his real selfhood as a beloved child of God and about God's constant care and protection. She explained at length that since God is everywhere present and fills all space, there is no room or place for a cold to get into and express itself. She pointed out among other things that in reality everyone dwells in the atmosphere of Love and therefore cannot be robbed of his joy, happiness, or health. She assured him that he would be able to go to school free and well.
