TREASURING YOUR 'CHILD-HEART'

From the September 2010 issue of The Christian Science Journal


REMEMBER THE TRUST, security, and peace many of us felt as children? Our parents looked out for us, guided us, and kept us safe. At times we may feel a desire to go back and be a child again or to know that someone is caring for us. While we, of course, can't go back in time, we can never lose the childlike qualities—the child-heart, as a hymn puts it—that are our spiritual inheritance from our divine parent.

A verse from the hymn says:

Trust the Eternal, and repent in meekness
Of that heart's pride which frowns and will not
yield,
Then to thy child-heart shall come strength in
weakness,
And thine immortal life shall be revealed.
(William P. McKenzie, Christian Science Hymnal, No. 359)
