Follow After Good

[Of Special Interest to Children]

When Irma was a little girl she loved to play follow-the-leader leader. She would hop, skip, and jump in exact imitation of the child who was heading the line. She could mimic very well, and she was often chosen to lead. Then the children would copy what she was doing. It was great fun and one of her favorite games.

But as Irma grew older and went to school, she did not always stop to think, and sometimes she would follow and imitate those who did not have the same understanding of right and wrong that she had been taught.

Irma had been brought up as a Christian Scientist. She had been taught that God is Love and that He is everywhere, filling all space all the time. Therefore there is no room for error.
