The wasp was harmless
Bobby loved being outdoors. His family lived at the edge of the town, and their house was next to the construction company his father owned. Bobby could always find pieces of scrap lumber. With a hammer, nails, and a saw, he could build neat things like a raft or a treehouse.
Behind the wooden fence that separated his house from the construction company, there was a stack of concrete blocks. Sometimes Bobby would climb on these. Concrete blocks are hollow inside, and some wasps had built nests in the blocks. Bobby got too close to the wasps' nests, and many of them came out and stung him. They were able to sting right through his clothes. The stings hurt, and he was afraid. He ran to the house crying and told his mother what had happened.
Bobby's family had been attending the Christian Science church since he was four. He'd learned to rely on the healing Truth, and he'd a wonderful healing of asthma. His mother had memorized a sentence that's in the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. She repeated it to Bobby: "All of God's creatures, moving in the harmony of Science, are harmless, useful, indestructible." They talked about how God had created all of His creatures harmless. Anything else would not be the truth about God's creation that the Bible says is "very good."
