"My Father worketh hitherto"

Christ Jesus said, "My Father worketh hitherto, and I work." A Christian Scientist in business has the constant opportunity of proving the truth of Jesus' statement in his daily experience. Mrs. Eddy tells us in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 94), "Jesus taught but one God, one Spirit, who makes man in the image and likeness of Himself,—of Spirit, not of matter." So we learn that it was Jesus' clear sense of God as Spirit and of man as spiritual, God's image and likeness, that made it possible for him to declare, "My Father worketh hitherto, and I work." He knew that man's activity reflects the activity of divine Mind.

What a glorious truth to recognize and apply in our everyday business! How free and untiring one's activity when he realizes that his "Father worketh hitherto," and that his work is to reflect the activity of Mind!
