TRUE EMPLOYMENT

The work of a Christian Scientist is always to heal, whatever his occupation. The human occupation is the arena in which we can demonstrate Christian Science. Having this thought in the center of our hearts is like having a spiritual treasury, since it will govern, beautify, and transform whatever we have to do. This is putting the spiritual first. Mary Baker Eddy says in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 159), "The true thought escapes from the inward to the outward, and this is the only right activity, that whereby we reach our higher nature."

Unless we have the thought of healing in the forefront of our thinking, we cannot expect to make much progress or to achieve true success. We should not confine the thought of healing to practitioner and patient. Our first duty is to have a healing attitude and not entertain a single thought that would cause a bruised reed to break—that would produce discouragement or faltering steps. As we go about the city on our various expeditions, we have ample opportunity to replace false mental pictures with true ones.
