P.S.S.T. Golden Text – What does the statement in the Golden Text indicate about God’s guidance for each of us with every step we take?

P.S.S.T. Responsive Reading – Speaking of God, Mind’s, guidance, what are some key qualities and phrases mentioned that assure you can trust in Mind’s guidance?

  • The Lord giveth wisdom
  • Out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding
  • Buckler
  • Preserveth the way of his saints
  • Understanding, righteousness, judgment, equity
  • Discretion shall preserve thee
  • Let thine eyes look right on
  • Let all thy ways be established

The last verses in the Responsive Reading, Proverbs 3: 5 and 6, are a good memorization opportunity.

P.S.S.T. Section 1 – Read together the Bible portion of this section. What are key statements telling you of God, Mind’s, guidance? Look to the Science & Health portion of this section to tell you of the result of Mind’s guidance:

  • Wisdom to all
  • Mind is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient
  • Individual reflection from the infinitesimal to the infinite
  • You are coexistent and coeternal with Mind
  • “Spirit imparts the understanding which… leads into all truth.”
  • “All that… exists is the divine Mind and its idea…”
  • Yield to this power
  • Follow the leadings of truth

P.S.S.T. Section 2 – Proverbs 3:5 & 6 are repeated again. This must be important.

Ask students to share experiences where they trusted God, Mind’s, guidance or leading and their paths were directed.

What was the result of Moses being guided by God in citation B8? Read aloud the affirming statement of God’s guidance in citation S6. How can you know that it is God’s guidance you are hearing? S8, S9. Since God has never abandoned you, you are always guided and governed by your Maker. S12.

P.S.S.T. Section 3 – What is a seer? Prophet. What role did the prophet Samuel play in the life of Saul? Look to other passages in I Samuel 9:15-17 and 27, as well as 10:1. Did Saul get the donkeys back for his father? What else did he get? Samuel anointed Saul for his new position as ruler of Israel. What role did Saul’s servant play in guiding Saul to the prophet? Could you conclude that each of us has a role to play as we interact with each other? None is left out being guided by God.

P.S.S.T. Section 4 – What were Simon and his brothers guided to do? B15. They left fishing and became disciples. How did Jesus instruct them in citation S18? Because the disciples were willing to leave their nets, they received the opportunity to learn and practice Christian healing. Are you willing to follow the Christ, God’s, guidance in your daily activities? See the result in citation S21.

P.S.S.T. Section 5 – What is God’s promise to you in citation B19? Read aloud together citation B20.

What are the thoughts that God thinks about us? Today, when there appear to be conflicts, of what can we be assured? S26. One need never be afraid when God, Mind, is guiding. Can there ever be another power outside of God, Mind? Therefore, as a Christian Scientist, what have you enlisted to do?

  • Hold crime in check
  • Aid in the ejection of error
  • Maintain law and order
  • Cheerfully await the certainty of ultimate perfection

When you wait patiently on God… what is the result? S27.

P.S.S.T. Section 6 – The Golden Text is repeated again in citation B23. This must be important. What then are we to cultivate? Patient listening and following God, Mind. Read citation B25. Mary Baker Eddy thought this so important that she provided Tenet 6 in Science & Health for our institution. See SH 497:24.

Read together a favorite hymn of Sunday School students: #304 in the Christian Science Hymnal.

—————————-

Hymn 304:

Shepherd, show me how to go O’er the hillside steep,
How to gather, how to sow,—How to feed Thy sheep;
I will listen for Thy voice, Lest my footsteps stray;
I will follow and rejoice All the rugged way.
Thou wilt bind the stubborn will, Wound the callous breast,
Make self-righteousness be still, Break earth’s stupid rest.
Strangers on a barren shore, Lab’ring long and lone,
We would enter by the door, And Thou know’st Thine own;
So, when day grows dark and cold, Tear or triumph harms,
Lead Thy lambkins to the fold, Take them in Thine arms;
Feed the hungry, heal the heart, Till the morning’s beam;
White as wool, ere they depart, Shepherd, wash them clean.
