The Angel Thought in Business

Throughout all time, men and women have sought and received deliverance from trouble through divine aid. In many Scriptural instances of release from affliction, it is recorded that angels brought God's saving power, effecting the needed release or protection.

In the nineteenth chapter of I Kings, it is recorded that the prophet Elijah, fleeing for his life from his formidable foe, Queen Jezebel, "went a day's journey into the wilderness" beset by despondency. As he slept, we read, "an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat. And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head." The prophet partook of the good that was provided, and lay down again. Then the angel touched him once more, and bade him arise and eat. Thus renewed and refreshed, he went "unto Horeb the mount of God."

Mortal thought, steeped in material ignorance and misled by its own misconception of angels, can find little of practical value in this Biblical account. However, enlightened by spiritual understanding, gained from the study and acceptance of the truths of Christian Science as set forth by Mary Baker Eddy in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," many find help and encouragement in the application of this lesson to daily experience.
