Expressing good judgment

"Don't strike a match near an open gasoline tank." The statement contains a certain kind of appeal for the exercise of good judgment—no question about it! Yet there are many times when it's not so easy to determine the best thing to do in a given circumstance. And most of us have probably looked back at some past mistake and realized that we could have made a better choice or taken a wiser course of action.

Many people have found that the teachings and practice of Christian Science help them to express good judgment more consistently in their experience, both in their day-to-day activities and in the larger issues of their lives. This is because Christian Science teaches one always to pray first, and it teaches how to pray.
