Flexibility of Thought

One of the cherished qualities often found in children is their teachableness, or their flexibility of thought. Many of the new methods of teaching in schools find ready acceptance among those who have not previously been taught and who for this reason have little resistance to innovation. Mrs. Eddy says, "Children are more tractable than adults, and learn more readily to love the simple verities that will make them happy and good." Science and Health, p. 236;

Jesus also commented on this same element of thought and indicated that we may not enter the kingdom of heaven except we become as little children. With such instruction on the advisability of being flexible and teachable, what can we do as adults to cultivate such an attitude of thought? One could gain nothing by attempting to turn back the clock, and certainly Jesus required no impossible feat. He included in his own teachings the way of redemption from every erroneous trait. He taught the way of meekness, humility, and self-immolation.
