Power of a Right Decision

"Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison." These words of Jesus shed their illuminating light upon the dark problems of human experience, bringing forth the great fact that the only thing one ever has to do—the only thing one can do—is to decide to be obedient to divine Principle. When we have done that, our problem is solved. This is clearly indicated in the following words from our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy (p. 419): "Your true course is to destroy the foe, and leave the field to God, Life, Truth, and Love, remembering that God and His ideas alone are real and harmonious."

Sometimes mortal thought tries to deceive one into believing that he must change his environment, his business, indeed his entire future, in order to find health, happiness, and success; whereas, in reality, his salvation lies in deciding to stand with divine Principle, Truth. As Paul put it to the Ephesians, "Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand."
