"My yoke is easy"

A man who had been unemployed for about two years asked a Christian Scientist to help him solve his problem. In relating his unhappy experiences, he used the word "difficult" or words similar in meaning, many times. It was pointed out that we must remind ourselves often of the great truth expressed by Christ Jesus when he said, "Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

It was explained to the seeker that God is ever active, and that man, His image and likeness, naturally reflects the ceaseless, harmonious activity of Mind, Love, and Life. It was also explained that as we apply this truth, we are led to our right work and to opportunities to be of service to our fellow men. The man was encouraged to declare the truth in connection with the problem, and to know that he could find opportunities for service as he applied Christian Science to the solution of the financial situation. Obedience brought its reward. Within forty-eight hours he was satisfactorily employed.
