Our Father's Business

The average person at work in the office, shop, factory, store, or selling goods on the road, believes he is attending to business; but is he in the true sense of the word really doing so when thus occupied? Ask him his reason for being in business, and his reply may be, "To make money." True, however, there are to be found instances where the reply will be, "I'm in business to serve."

A dictionary definition of business is "action." And action is in turn defined as "activity, a deed." It is clear that a deed or act cannot be properly performed without mental activity—activity, not of the so-called carnal or mortal mind, but of the divine Mind, God, the only real intelligence governing the universe, including man. The Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, writing in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," says (p. 283), "Mind is the source of all movement, and there is no inertia to retard or check its perpetual and harmonious action."
