Be a child at heart, and let that change your life.
Many Advertised Products or methods claim to restore youthful appearances. In one magazine alone, I found mention of a drug to grow hair for balding men, another drug to improve the appearance of the skin, plus others to restore vigor. And in a recent mailer, one company claimed its drug would improve memory and extend life by 18 percent.
There's nothing wrong with wanting vitality and freshness. After all, Christ Jesus urged his followers to become as little children. He said, "Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven" (Matt. 18:3). However, Jesus wasn't recommending the use of drugs and cosmetic surgery to accomplish this. Heaven is the realm of God, divine Spirit. And man is made in God's, Spirit's, likeness. Man is actually spiritual, not material. The truth is, age is no part of our eternal being, as God's image. In the Christian Science textbook, Mary Baker Eddy writes, "Man in Science is neither young nor old" (Science and Health, p. 244). Thus it is through spirituality that we experience the bliss and vitality of Spirit.
