[Of Special Interest to Children]

A Treasure is something precious or a collection of precious things. Little girls may have collections of dolls, doll clothes, doll furniture. Little boys often collect toy cars, marbles, postage stamps. They like to keep their treasures in a safe place, such as a box or trunk. Some of these have locks to keep their contents safe. On dark or rainy days, when they must play indoors, they get out their treasures and have fun sharing them with their friends.

Our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered and founded Christian Science, tells us of other treasures—treasures of Truth and Love, These are truths we learn concerning God. For instance, we learn that God is Love and that He is everywhere. Wherever we go, God is there. We learn that we are His children and that He cares for us always. God is Mind, and all of our thought treasures come from Him. God is Spirit. His children reflect Him, and they are always healthy, happy, and good.

The more we learn of God, the better we shall understand and prove what we really are. Mrs. Eddy says (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 265), "Man understands spiritual existence in proportion as his treasures of Truth and Love are enlarged."
