Good Business

In the business world one hears a great deal about statistics, figures, turnover, volume, mass production, and so forth. While it is necessary to take human footsteps in connection with one's business, this does not mean that business is based on material beliefs. True business lies in acquiring an understanding of God's laws and applying them correctly; and thereby we may reflect good at all times.

A definition of "business" is, "That which busies, or engages time, attention, or labor, as a principal serious concern or interest." We often hear the thought expressed in these days that business is bad. And if we are not alert, we are apt to talk about business depression to many whom we meet throughout the day, and on returning home in the evening to repeat the whole thing over again to our family. They, in turn, may repeat it to others, thereby magnifying the error. "By universal consent," Mrs. Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 229), "mortal belief has constituted itself a law to bind mortals to sickness, sin, and death."
