Schoolteachers and church Readers—their morals

We have witnessed in recent years a growing insistence that more honesty and morality be practiced by those who serve the public. Politicians—perhaps because they are some of the most visible people in society—often take a good share of the spotlight when wrongdoing is uncovered and people begin to demand higher standards.

All of us, regardless of the position we fill, ought to recognize the need to develop in our own lives the standards we are requiring of others. Each of us is obliged to raise his level of obedience to the moral and spiritual precepts spelled out in the Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount. But there are two positions of public service that merit special and specific attention when we are considering the importance of upgrading standards of conduct. They are the posts of teachers in our school systems and Readers in Churches of Christ, Scientist.
