You can be a healing helper

Lily was just learning to read, but she already knew that there were healing ideas in the Bible that could help her when she had a problem. Sometimes, on the way to school Mom would play a recording of that week’s Bible Lesson from the Christian Science Quarterly. They would talk about ideas from the Bible and from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy that helped them feel close to God and stay close to God all day long. Lily had had many healings with ideas from the Bible as she listened to the Lesson on the way to school.

One day, when Lily’s little sister, Maggie, fell down and got hurt, Lily was the one upstairs with her. There were grownups downstairs who could have comforted and helped Maggie. But Lily knew she could help, too. She knew just what to do!

Quickly, she ran to her desk and got her Bible. She brought it over to Maggie. Lily didn’t want to take time to find her favorite passages, so she just opened up the Bible and started reading aloud. She felt sure that God would have a good message to comfort Maggie.
