Drug abuse: We can do something about it

When asked what can be done about the epidemic of drug abuse, some people respond that it doesn’t affect them specifically so they don’t really need to be concerned. Others say that the problem is too big, so what’s the point in even trying to help? Yes, there are many unselfish citizens and first responders in our communities who dedicate their time to tackling this issue, with some good results. But what if we feel somewhat removed from the issue and aren’t sure how we can be of service? 

There’s something that people who are studying Christian Science can do right now that can make a difference. It requires unique courage and compassion, an undaunted love for our fellow man, and a commitment to seeing each person’s God-given integrity. Inspired by a spiritual understanding of God, and of man as God’s reflection, we can feel motivated to regularly take moments to pray about this issue until we see results.
