GOD'S GOVERNING

Ethics and integrity

Claiming our wholeness as God's likeness, we're standing for our integrity. We refuse to be pulled apart by belief in opposing powers.

From the May 2000 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Considering the headlines in recent times, it's not surprising that people are yearning for those in government, business—and, in fact, all walks of life—to follow higher ethical standards. Is doing so just a matter of human striving to be and do better, to stick more firmly to the right and be more alert and prompt in spurning the wrong? Of course, such striving is valuable, but without a perception of the divine reality underlying our efforts, we may find ourselves wanting to do right but not always achieving it.
