Under the government of Love

From the June 26, 2017 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

Amid the great concern these days about obstacles to good government facing institutions around the world—such as greed, incompetence, stubbornness, lust for power, or simply a misguided but honest attempt to do good—I find myself challenged to watch my thinking. Christ Jesus told his disciples, “What I say unto you I say unto all, Watch” ( Mark 13:37 ), and I take this to mean being alert to the temptation to indulge in indignation, fear, and the constant rehearsing of perceived faults or wrongs of individuals in leadership positions.
