Wasp stings gone

Last summer I took my kids to the local swimming pool, and we were having a fun time. But at one point I saw a wasp that had fallen into the pool and was struggling, so I picked it up in my hand to rescue it from drowning. Immediately it stung my finger, and I realized I should have used an object to lift it out instead of grabbing it. I automatically shook it off my hand, but then it flew onto my toddler’s shoulder. He grabbed it in his little hand, and it stung him, too. 

When my son cried out, I told him that God loves him and God is right here. I instantly remembered Mary Baker Eddy’s statement in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, “All of God’s creatures, moving in the harmony of Science, are harmless, useful, indestructible” (p. 514). I affirmed the truth of this statement again and again. I never felt mad at the wasp; I just felt love and compassion because I knew the little insect had only been reacting in fear.
