Inspirational Thought

There are two paths you can travel in seeking to accomodate your professional calling and your religious beliefs.  One is the path of delusion and segmentation; the other is the path of reconciliation and integration.  The path reconciliation is the harder way, but it is the truthful way.  The easy way is the delusion that you can separate your Christian aspirations from that part of yourself that is engaged in earning a living.  It is easier because you can then let the secular world define your professional role for you, and you can limit your professional aspirations by the ethics of role.  The study of professional ethics for lawyers is a serious and worthwhile part of your legal education.  Professional ethics will lift your standards above the daily mores of commerce and politics, but they cannot be substituted for your Christian aspirations if you want to be more at peace with yourself.
