No injustice too small or too large to be healed

Two people next to me in line at the post office were discussing world conditions. One said: "I have to admit that injustices of any sort are the hardest thing in life for me to deal with. They make me thoroughly sad." It's certain that countless others feel the same. Even small children smart at what they sense is unfair. One little fellow put it in his unique way: "It's OK, Mom, when you're mad at me for something I really did. But when it's Jimmy's fault (his year-younger brother) and I get the blame, it makes me madder than you are."

Whether the problem we're facing is the small injustices that occur in family situations despite our best intentions, or whether it's major acts of wrong that cause public concern, we need to work to prevent and heal injustice. To a Christian Scientist the most effective starting point—in fact the starting point—is prayer that is based on an understanding of the nature of God and His all-governing will.
