Let's Teach Expectancy

Pupils in our Sunday Schools should expect results now from what they are learning about Christian Science. Are we cultivating this expectancy?

An understanding of Christian Science should not he put aside for future years. Instead, it is an active force for good in the lives of those who hourly turn to it. Do our pupils know this? The teacher who expects immediate results from Christian Science transmits this attitude to his class.

A teacher's feeling toward his class may be: "How can I expect my pupils to apply Christian Science? They don't have any real problems now." But a skinned knee, a fall from a bicycle or a tree, danger on busy streets and crowded playgrounds, mounting pressures in schoolwork and social activities often seem overwhelming to pupils. And healing can be realized now from their unfolding understanding of Christian Science. We can teach them to pray, "Give us this day our daily bread" (Matt. 6:11), emphasizing "this day," and to approach each Sunday School class, each Lesson-Sermon, and each home assignment with the thought: This is meant for me. It ran help now!
