When a mother reaches a hand down and her child in response raises his hand and takes hers, and the two of them proceed across the street in cooperative harmony, the child is acting in the obedience of faith. There is no coercion offered or apprehended, and there is no motivation of reward on the child’s part. The child’s faith in his mother’s love is so full that there is no room for calculation or hypothetical thinking of any kind, just as the mother’s love leaves no room for manipulation. The mother’s perfect love reaches, the little boy’s perfect faith responds, and where their hands join, there is a perfect bond of understanding.
