FRIENDS, TEACHERS ... AND GETTING ALONG

LAST YEAR AT SCHOOL I got into a fight with my best friend. We couldn't talk with or even look at each other. After school that day, I went to talk to a teacher about this problem. I go to a Christian Science school where the students are encouraged to pray about everything using their understanding of Christian Science. My teacher suggested turn to God to resolve the situation. Because of what I had learned about God and myself as His image, I was not going to let anger take over my thinking. I knew I had to refresh, or change, my thoughts.

After I left her classroom, I started to walk home and began to pray. Right away I knew that I had to be quiet and listen to what God was telling me about my friend. As I was listening for God's message to me, the idea came that God was my friend. God would always be my friend. And I thought, "OK, if God is my friend, then she is my friend too." As God's children we both reflected the eternal qualities of friendship like kindness, thoughtfulness, and unselfishness. These qualities are always with us because God is always with us.

We'd love to hear from you!
