Permanent Business Building

Almost every one engaged in business to-day realizes, more clearly and forcibly than ever before, the benefits, blessings, safety,—yea, the absolute need,—of a plain, practical religion. In Christian Science he has found what he long has sought. It is counted on the asset side of his balance sheet; and he would find it more difficult to do without it in his affairs than any other element in life. He has learned the value of both the preventive and the curative qualities of Christian Science, and he depends on their help to solve his daily problems.

Christian Science is acknowledged to be a practical religion, logical and scientific. It is based solely on Truth; and no business can progress properly which lacks this divine essential. It matters not whether in the home, on the road, on land or sea, in the workshop or the office,—everywhere Christian Science, when properly applied, brings into the lives of its adherents fullness of peace, happiness, and prosperity; for therein divine Love is their guide, which promises, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

We should know the truth that, as the children of God, all real good is ours; and we should deny the encroaching belief that anything can interfere with our right business progress. It will then become manifest in all our affairs, because we shall be able to work out each daily problem as it presents itself, even as the Master, Christ Jesus, did, through the understanding and application of the rule of divine Love. Thus we shall comply with Paul's command, "Work out your own salvation. ... For it is God which worketh in you."
