Not Who but What Is Right

Self-pity and confusion filled my thoughts as I sat in the practitioner's office, woefully pouring out the story of my unhappiness and discouragement. I had been vainly attempting to use my newfound understanding of Christian Science in working out a difficult relationship problem; someone appeared unkind and unfair, and it seemed that I was very right and this individual was very wrong. Kindly but firmly the practitioner told me, "It doesn't matter who is right. It is what is right that's important."

That visit to the practitioner's office took place many years ago. The complete solution of the relationship problem required much prayer and spiritual growth, but the statement given me became a central theme in my prayers ever after. I have never forgotten its tremendous import.
