You’ll find me at the kids’ table
My devoted study of Christian Science was making a beautiful and visible change in my character.
The other day, a friend remarked, “You certainly do enjoy your time with young children and babies.” I had told him about a joyful evening I’d spent with another friend’s two young children. His comment made me realize just how much I had changed since becoming a student of Christian Science about two years ago. It meant so much to me to realize that my devoted study of Christian Science was making a beautiful and visible change in my character. Not only do I now enjoy children, but I find them to be my spiritual teachers. Here’s what I mean.
Before Christian Science came into my life, I was completely uninterested in children and failed to understand why others were drawn to them. I observed that people seemed to love having children, but I identified more with the viewpoint of some that children are burdensome and too much work. However, I had read in the Bible of the importance Jesus placed on children, saying, “Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3). So, what was I missing?
