He hath showed thee, O man, what is good;And what doth the Lord require of thee,But to do justly, and to love mercy,And to walk humbly with thy God?Men are still seeking to know what is good. Webelieve that our Christianity is the good that theworld needs. A very practical question for us toconsider then is, whether our modern Christianitymeets this divine definition of religion: justice,kindness and humble fellowship with God.The demandTO DO JUSTLYwould seem so elemental and inevitable as to needlittle discussion. o one can deny the obligationof fair dealing without condemning himself. Andyet a serious embarrassment of Christianity todayis in the interpretation of honesty and fairness byits adherents. What is it to do justly? Of courseit is to tell the truth, to give fair weight and fairmeasure, not to adulterate nor misrepresent. Theserun glibly off the tongue, but in practical businessChristian men do not always find these evidentprinciples so easy of application.A lumber dealer told me that specificationsreached him every week calling for bids for secondgrade lumber. As a matter of fact third gradelumber was always used for that kind of work.He knew that his competitors bid on the basis of WHAT IS GOOD? 95third grade, although of course they were agreeingto furnish what was called for in the specifications.If he put in his bids on the basis of second gradelumber, he would never get an order. He decided tofall in with the prevailing custom. Was that to do justly? He said that it was, because he gave hiscustomer what he needed and what everybody elsewould have given him. But he did not give whathe promised.A few years ago I helped elect a man to the Leg-islature. He was an exceptional man, and we allexpected him to take a stand against every abuse.
