Robbie Listens and Is Healed

[Of Special Interest to Children]

Robbie is a happy little boy who attends a Christian Science Sunday School every Sunday. He is in the first grade at school. Each morning before he goes to school, his mother helps him study the Golden Text of the weekly Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly, and she reads some of the lesson to him.

They talk about God and His ever-presence and know that there is no power other than God. Sometimes they repeat the ninety-first Psalm from the Bible. Robbie especially likes verse 11. It reads, "For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways."

One Saturday Robbie was asked by his grandfather to come over and help him clean the yard and move a woodpile. "Oh, goody, that will be fun," shouted Robbie gleefully. When the wood was all neatly stacked, Grandfather let Robbie wheel the wheelbarrow, which they had used in moving the wood, around the yard to pick up sticks. With the sticks they built a fire.
