Are People in the Way?
In the crowded bus a small boy saw the main stop approaching and started struggling to get to the door. As he struck out in frustration against the people around him, his father stopped him. "Hold on, Son," he said. "These people want to get out, too." And in a few moments the boy, his father, and the people who had seemed a barrier were moving toward the exit door together.
Sometimes it seems as if we are flooded into anonymity by the crowd or oppressed by individuals in it. We think we must shove them aside to get anywhere. When we think like this, we are not only spoiling our own peace but contributing to a perverted world concept that claims to harm everyone. The implications range from war and ecological disaster to office politics and family friction.
The real state of things, as it stands in God's sight, is entirely different. How we idealize the gentle order of Isaiah's prophecy, "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them"! Isa. 11:6; But this is not far off; it is the valid way of life now, as Christianity has always declared, and as Christian Science makes practical down to the smallest detail of our lives.
