Use your “superpower”

One of Roland’s favorite things is a beautiful metal butterfly with shiny stones on its delicate pink wings. He loves to pretend it is his pet butterfly. He feeds it special butterfly food. He made a bed for it to sleep in. And he always takes very good care of it.

One day, Roland told his mommy that Butterfly was lost. At first, Mommy and Roland thought they could find Butterfly at home. But then Roland said that Butterfly had been pinned on his jacket when they’d gone to the mall. If Butterfly had fallen off at the mall, how would they ever find him?

Roland had been learning in Christian Science Sunday School about the “superheroes” of the Bible, like Moses and Daniel. His teacher called them superheroes because they did things that people didn’t ordinarily do and were close to God. Also, they helped others by using their greatest “superpower”: prayer! Roland had learned that his greatest superpower was also prayer.
