Viewing the news

One day, while thinking through the "Daily Prayer" by Mary Baker Eddy, I asked God that any hypocrisy or deceit in my thought might be revealed to me. The answer was instant. A meeting of the world's leaders was taking place this day, and I was shocked to realize that my attitude toward much of the world news was too often derision, cynicism, and scorn.

I felt near hatred for the leaders of a particular group of people and a low estimate of the course of action proposed by the leaders of my own country. I recognized instantly that this boxed-in, unchristian thinking had to go. How had I let such wasted, enervating thought accumulate?
