Childlike trust heals finger
A few years ago, while hammering brick pavers into the dirt to create a patio, I came down with a heavy rubber mallet onto one of my fingers. When I looked at the finger, I could see that the nail was broken beyond the quick and the finger was injured. The friend who was working on the project with me saw the finger and said with a touch of sarcasm and regret, “Well, that’s going to be fun,” implying that the healing of the nail and the finger might not be easy. He said that he’d had a similar injury, and it’d taken a long time to heal completely.
I immediately went into the house to rinse the finger and, standing at the kitchen window, looked outside and began to pray. The first thought that came to me was the story from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy of a little girl who wounded her finger. Mrs. Eddy included this account to illustrate the childlike trust in God’s healing power which children naturally have.
