OBEDIENCE UNFOLDS THE WAY

[Of Special Interest to Young People]

Everyone is familiar with the paper game that children sometimes play, in which the object is to connect by means of pencil lines a series of numbered dots. The result is that by following the directions, one finds an interesting picture of some sort—a person, an animal, or a scene—where before there was just a meaningless jumble of dots. The important point is that only by obedience, to order, joining the numbers consecutively, does one discover the picture.

Sometimes young people, as well as others, seem to be confronted with a set of circumstances that appear to have no purpose or promise, and the prospects are vague and uncertain. Through obedience to the Christ, Truth, as revealed in Christian Science, one may always be assured of finding his way and of demonstrating happiness, success, and abundance, In fact, it may be said that just as in the game the picture was always there, only waiting to be outlined, so the answer and the victory are always present to be manifested to human thought. Therefore the alert Christian Scientist learns to keep his attention on the answer rather than on the problem and the difficulty. He thinks in terms of the completeness and allness of God and His creation and works from the standpoint of perfection.
