Love's protection

[Original in German]

Horst, who was almost three years old, was a pupil at the Sunday School in the branch Church of Christ, Scientist, to which his parents belonged. Here he had learned that "God is love" I John 4:8; and that all people and animals are really spiritual creations of God, Love. For this reason he saw he needn't fear anyone or anything he came in contact with.

One day he went with his father to the post office, where there were many people standing at the counters. In one corner a little dog was tied up, so he walked over to pet it. He'd forgotten he'd been told not to pet strange dogs.

To his surprise the dog jumped up and bit him on the cheek. Some people around screamed, and Horst's father went at once to him, closed the wound with his handkerchief, and held the boy's head lovingly for a few moments. He was knowing the truth—that God's child is always free from harm.
