Man's Completeness

A Young student of Christian Science had been endeavoring to seek God first in solving his problems of supply. As he turned to divine Mind for guidance, he took right human footsteps in applying for a job, according to his understanding of the divine direction which he was seeking. One day, before the solution of his problem had been made manifest to him, he was led to go into an employment office in an organization where all the employing had been temporarily completed. During the interview the telephone rang and a department head requested an additional person for the day. Since there was no one within the organization available, the applicant was told that a job was open for one day, and asked if he wanted it. Of course he wanted it, for it was an opportunity to take one step forward in making his demonstration. He went to work for one day, thus meeting another's need. Two years later he was still employed in that same organization.

A problem is an opportunity to prove the power of God, to practice Christian Science. The suggestions which would question one's ability to find the right contacts, which would claim a necessity for special influence, or bewilderment as to what to do first, is answered as we practice Christian Science in accordance with Christ Jesus' command, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
