Making Right Decisions

[Written Especially for Young People]

Was there ever a time when it was more important for young people to make right decisions regarding their careers? They are asking: Which courses in education and training should I pursue? Which profession or business should I equip myself for? Where should I look for employment? How can I become successful? These are but a few of the many questions on which right, constructive thinking is most essential in order that we may make right decisions, for we know that thought precedes and motive determines action. The young student finds that making right decisions is comparatively simple, and the results are correspondingly satisfactory, when he turns to his heavenly Father for spiritual guidance.

Solomon commands: "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." With what joyous confidence and tender assurance does Mary Baker Eddy, in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," give this wise counsel (p. 454): "Love inspires, illumines, designates, and leads the way. Right motives give pinions to thought, and strength and freedom to speech and action."
