Divine Love corrects man

From The Christian Science Journal - May 26, 2016

Originally written in Portuguese, this first appeared in the May 2016 Portuguese, Spanish, French, and German editions of The Herald of Christian Science. 

What do we think of politicians accused of corruption? What about tax collectors, the police, civil servants, or anyone who falls into the temptation to be dishonest just to earn some extra money? 

Most people react with anger and hate. But does anger or hate help correct the situation? Do these attitudes on our part help those who are corrupt to become better individuals? Does our hatred do ourselves any good? Certainly not.

So what can we do when we read or hear news of corruption, or come across dishonesty being expressed by a person in our daily lives? We can follow the example of Christ Jesus.
