Making Right Decisions

From the October 1968 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Human experience is fraught with the constant necessity of making decisions. Though these range from the simple to the complex, they all present a challenge to one's sense of peace and harmony. Everyone is desirous of making right decisions, and considerable time, effort, and concern are devoted to this end.

When faced with the need of making a decision, the student of Christian Science readily accepts the challenge but not the anxiety that tends to go with it. He knows from his study of this great Science that infinite intelligence, the divine Mind, is ever near and ready to help, guide, and point the way. The light of spiritual understanding is never for an instant separated from God's spiritual ideas. Furthermore, there is no material law, or belief of mortal mind, no suggestion of ignorance or doubt, no condition, time, or place, that can prevent the illumination of thought with the wisdom and understanding necessary to reach the proper conclusion. Christ Jesus was so conscious of this fact—the allness of God and the perfection of His creation—that under all circumstances he was able to make right decisions.

The key to Jesus' success was his embodiment of the Christ, the power of God to heal and save. Accordingly, he could not be misdirected by any material claim or suggestion or thwarted by any problem. This is the ultimate for each of us: so to manifest the Christ that all problems of the flesh and material laws will be revealed for what they actually are—lawless, causeless, powerless suggestions of the carnal, or mortal, mind.
