Honesty in Religion

Dayton (O.) Journal

To consecrate is to set apart as sacred. Jesus said, "Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." The Apostle Paul said, "Present your bodies a living sacrifice."

To consecrate our lives to God, includes our means and our business, whatever our vocation may be. It is conducting business on the basis of the Golden Rule, a strictly honest and just standard, not on false measures and misrepresentations. A practical consecration of our lives to God in the business world is illustrated in the method adopted by a business man who became a Christian Scientist and instructed his clerks to sell goods just as they are, "cotton for cotton, and wool for wool, else let them perish on the shelves." Since adopting this basic principle in business his sales have increased.
