In seeking a clearer understanding of true employment, one student of Christian Science has found it helpful to consider the verse from the Bible which reads (Isa. 49:4), "Then I said, I have laboured in vain, I have spent my strength for nought, and in vain: yet surely my judgment is with the Lord, and my work with my God."
While the first part of this quotation indicates discouragement, the second part emphasizes the truth that one can trust God's justice and sure reward if one is acknowledging his true employment to be the expression of God.
A study of the words "expression" and "reflection,"' as used by Mary Baker Eddy, is helpful to one seeking a clearer understanding of true employment. For example, on page 470 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," she says, "Man is the expression of God's being." This might be considered as a correlative to Jesus' words (John 14:10), "The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works."
