Seeing the promise of children

Jesus loved children. Most of us would say that we love them too. But do we love them as he did? Mrs. Eddy writes, "Jesus loved little children because of their freedom from wrong and their receptiveness of right." Science and Health, p. 236;

Christ Jesus is the Master. He is our example. As we accept his Principle-derived ways and thoughts as our own we will strive to identify children with all that is right and good—God's expression. We will recognize that whatever seems wrong with children should not be identified with them or an individual child, but with the lie, the false sense of creation that fathers and destroys itself. Love for children is natural and Christlike when we dissociate them from sensualism, worldly beliefs, and material history and relate them to divine Truth, Life, and Love.
