Divine Law and Purpose in Business

From the July 1970 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The widening disparity between technological progress and the solution of social problems, including its dilemma "why go to the moon while millions go hungry?" is uncovering the need for a more enlightened approach to economic conditions, to business methods and problems. The limitations besetting efforts to meet this need on a material basis show that the basic motivating purpose of every useful and successful activity must be moral and spiritual, a genuine desire to serve rather than acquire.
