Right Choosing

In many ways daily living demands a constant choosing between good and evil, right and wrong, between the spiritual, upliftingg influence and the material, downward tendency. For the Christian Scientist this right choosing is essential to spiritual growth, exercising, as it does, that element of character building so necessary for the development of the highest ideals of Christianity.

The problem of daily living is in a great degree one of choosing, for there is constantly presented for one's consideration a choice of two or more ways, one only of which is the right one. Here, also, the pathway that is chosen determines the conduct of one's life and progress. A choice must be made, and, when rightly made, the result is real progress in honesty and integrity, in correct thinking and acting. On the other hand, should choice be made of the wrong or material way, it leads to harmful practices and dishonesty, and ends in the temporary loss of those qualities that mark the upright man.
