Scared of bugs? Not anymore!

It was a warm and sunny day. We had just set up our pool, and we were so excited to swim. Well, the water wasn’t so warm! I jumped out as quickly as I had jumped in, but when I went to go back in the house, there was a wasp flying around. I was afraid to go in and I was afraid to stay out. My dad finally convinced me I was safe, and I made it inside. I wish I hadn’t gotten so scared. It was only a bug, but I just didn’t like bugs! 

In the Christian Science Sunday School, I’m learning that I don’t ever have to believe in a power bigger than God or a power other than God. That’s why I love the story of Daniel in the lions’ den (see Daniel, chapter 6). Daniel, a good man who loved God, was put into a den of lions because he refused to worship anyone but God. What I love about this story is that Daniel was safe. The lions never hurt him. When we talk about the story in Sunday School, we talk about God’s love for Daniel and God’s love for the lions, too. Daniel knew that God controls all creatures and that his only job was to always put God first. He was following the first of the Ten Commandments: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:3). To me this commandment means that we don’t ever have to be scared or believe that there could be a power besides God.
