Youth and a Career in Healing

Christ Jesus put no restrictions of age on our ability to heal disease and discord. He didn't even say we have to be over twenty to perform wonders such as stilling storms and overcoming famine conditions for multitudes. He said, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father." John 14:12; There is no reason to assume the Master's promise is only for people who have graduated from high school.

In Science and Health Mrs. Eddy makes clear that this Christly promise, and the demand it makes on the Master's followers in all periods, is for everyone. She writes, "It is possible,—yea, it is the duty and privilege of every child, man, and woman,—to follow in some degree the example of the Master by the demonstration of Truth and Life, of health and holiness." Science and Health, p. 37;

So—whatever age group you may be in, Jesus' command "Heal the sick" Matt. 10:8; is addressed to you. Now is the time to obey this command—to begin to demonstrate in some degree the presence of God, good, and the consequent nothingness of evil. Now is the time to begin to destroy limitation and discord in whatever forms they may appear.
