Making Right Decisions

In the seemingly complex society in which we live we are constantly called upon to make decisions and carry them through; and to mortal sense we may often feel very much alone. Error would perhaps have us believe that we lack ideas, intelligence, fluency of speech, coherence, judgment, experience, ability, discretion. If we listen to these suggestions, we soon become enmeshed in confusion, and we may find that, as Mary Baker Eddy states in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 550), "Error of though is reflected in error of action."

Men are continually seeking answers to their daily problems, and hoping that the right steps will be taken to achieve the correct solution. To those who know nothing of Chris tian Science, it may often seem well-nigh impossible to know which path to pursue, and they may say, "I don't know what to do." This admission would seem to imply that one is either incapable of intelligent activity or without inspiration and direction.
