One Employment

A STUDENT of Christian Science recently found herself in the category described by the world as one of the unemployed. About the same time letters were received from members of the family in other countries, who said that they also were in the ranks of this so-called inactive army. After she had read one of these letters the thought came forcibly to this student that the word "unemployment" had become too realistic, and an overuse of it was, therefore, adding to the mesmerism which was drawing recruits away from their heritage of right, active thinking.

The positive thought of the one true employment opened up helpful consideration. This one employment we all can accept is the exercise of charity, used in its broadest sense of love to our fellows. Universal love, given out in fullest measure, would help to solve the world's problems by keeping each of us employed in right thinking. In responding to and accepting the demands of Love, we should all be mentally active, and that activity would be manifested in our daily life.
