What Good Is Religion?

Michael Josephson shares this week’s Words for the Week.

In his fine book, The Business Bible, Rabbi Wayne Dosick tells of a soapmaker who challenged a rabbi: “What good is religion? It teaches honesty, but most people are dishonest.”

The rabbi answered, “My dear soapmaker, religion — like soap — only works when you use it.”

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Until you are ready to look foolish, you’ll never have the possibility of being great. – Cher
