A law that can challenge injustice

Adapted from an article published in The Christian Science Monitor, December 12, 2016.

“That’s unjust!” That was how I reacted when I learned that my school was going to charge me for damage I hadn’t caused. Many of us have no doubt felt aggrieved in this way or felt compassion toward others being treated unfairly.

We can each play a role in supporting the establishment of increasingly principled thinking and activity. “Everyone is called upon to lead everywhere they are,” former South African public prosecutor Thuli Madonsela once observed. “The first person we must lead is ourselves.”

Considering our embrace of the rule of law in our own thoughts and lives is a great starting point. And beyond that, I’ve learned in Christian Science of a divine law that is stable, lasting, and unqualified. Looking to God brings the understanding of this higher law.
