While my husband dealt with the practical steps in pleading our case, I decided to pray while waiting in the car.

One of the many benefits gained from reading the Bible is understanding the divine Principle that governs the moment-by-moment activity of our lives. I've read and studied the Bible nearly every day for many years now, and I've noticed that, in numerous instances, reliance on God has resulted in principled outcomes in people's everyday lives. Outcomes that are fair, just, and effective.

It wasn't until last summer, when my husband and I were on vacation, that I relied specifically on my understanding of God as Principle to solve a problem. When we were checking out of a summer resort, we noticed a charge to our account that we thought was unfair. What was especially troublesome was the underlying thought that the staff felt we had done something wrong. It seemed that the peace and fun we had looked forward to on this vacation were about to be snatched away from us.
