"Who? Me?"

When a child is asked to do something that appears difficult, he sometimes replies, with a skepticism of tone that indicates disbelief in his ability to fulfill the request, "Who? Me?" But the willing student of Christian Science who knows that man is the child of God need never doubt his ability to make a telling contribution to world peace. This Science teaches him that the universal understanding of Truth eventually will bring peace on earth, and his prayers are to this end.

Christ Jesus said, "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God." Matt. 5:9; To be a maker of peace who is worthy to be called a child of God is a privilege greatly to be desired. But in view of the seemingly limitless distress and turmoil in today's world, does not such an aspiration seem beyond hope of attainment? Perhaps one has abandoned all expectation of fulfilling the requirement of the seventh beatitude given by the Prince of Peace. If a person has yielded to the temptation of complete discouragement in this matter, let him turn more devotedly to the study of Christian Science and learn how each one may have an effective share in bringing peace to mankind.
