WHAT IS OUR CONCEPT OF WORK?

When the earnest prayer of the Psalmist (Ps. 51:10), "Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me," becomes our prayer, we are ready to express a spiritually-elevated concept of work. Our ability to achieve success is thereby assured. How important, then, to purify and spiritualize our concept of our professional and business activities, or of our service in the church, in the home, and in the community. If work is motivated by a sense of pressure from within or by demands from without, then it becomes drudgery. True work includes sharing the good which Mind, God, imparts to us.

Recognizing our God-given ability to reflect Mind's activity enables us to perform every task more harmoniously, more lovingly, more efficiently, and blesses all who come into our thought. The certainty of this fact gives us patience to await the inevitable reward of right doing. We are inspired by the wonderful statement made by Mary Baker Eddy in the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 454), "Right motives give pinions to thought, and strength and freedom to speech and action."
