This Thy Brother

A Student of Christian Science who was selling a useful commodity on a commission basis once found himself in what is termed a sales production slump. A feeling not only of discouragement and dissatisfaction, but of resentment as well, crept into his thinking. One day, while he was seated at his desk, the sales manager entered the salesmen's office to write on the blackboard the amounts of the day's sales made by the successful agents, together with their names. Again the student was tempted to feel envious and resentful, but this time he was alert to detect the erroneous suggestions. He immediately reversed these thoughts, recognizing the opportunity that was his to declare his gratitude for his brother salesmen's success. He rejoiced to know that God's bounty is for all, and silently expressed his deep thankfulness that these particular men had proved in their business the present availability of divine Love's supply.

At once, and without any special effort on his part, the student's sales improved, and they continued to advance in a satisfying degree. This experience also marked a step forward in his understanding of the fact that there is no profitless inactivity when one is reflecting God.
