Finding Continuous Employment

Many are suffering at the present time from a belief of lack of employment, lack of business, lack of opportunity. Let us consider for a moment, therefore, what is the first thing necessary in order to manifest a condition of continuous employment. Whatever the human activity to which one wishes to devote one's time and abilities, is it not primarily a mental activity, since every act is dependent on thought? Without thinking, there could be no activity; therefore, true thought is the underlying necessity of continuous employment.

God gives the ability to think intelligently, to reflect wisdom, joy, patience, perseverance, courage, and so on. Man possesses, as the reflection of God, perfect Mind, all these qualities, even as Jesus implied in his words, "All things that the Father hath are mine." In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 475), we find these words regarding man: "He is the compound idea of God, including all right ideas;" and, farther on in the same paragraph, she tells us that he "reflects spiritually all that belongs to his Maker."
