Making the Lessons Practical
"It is possible,—yea, it is the duty and privilege of every child, man, and woman,—to follow in some degree the example of the Master by the demonstration of Truth and Life, of health and holiness," writes our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 37).
A Sunday School teacher in a branch church writes that she has made it her foremost responsibility to teach her classes, be they three-year-olds, in-betweens, or pupils of college age, how to use Christian Science in every experience in their lives. She feels it is her privilege and duty to make certain that not one of her pupils lacks the understanding that he should have to use instantly the protective and healing power of Truth.
One day when she was discussing the importance of a practical understanding of Christian Science she gave the class a hypothetical problem and asked each pupil how he would work it out. In reply the pupils made several general statements of truth. The teacher lovingly pointed out that what they had said was true and the world would probably be much better for these thoughts. However, she went on to say that their general statements had done very little toward healing the particular problem under consideration. She showed how specific is the Bible promise, "The word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword" (Hebr. 4:12). They too must be specific and know truths that apply directly to the problem and that deny the seeming error.
