REFLECTION VERSUS FEAR OF COMPETITION

Reflecting divine Love is one's true occupation. Subordinating the untrue evidences of the physical senses to the dominating presence and power of spiritual sense, in which all is seen as the reflection of God, divine Love, is our daily task. In writing of Love, Mary Baker Eddy states in the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (P. 520): "Unfathomable Mind is expressed. The depth, breadth, height, might, majesty, and glory of infinite Love fill all space. That is enough!"

Competition in human experience is usually a normal, natural, beneficial activity, but dread of unfair competition causes inharmony and discord. Such dread actually has its roots in a latent fear of loss and is manifest in human experience as fear of failure, fear of not being a success, fear of not having a sufficient income. But, in the realm of God, where divine Love is supreme, can there be a failure, loss, or insufficiency? No, since God made man to represent Him. And he who represents God cannot fail, nor can he use unfair practices.
