Clad in Christly Garments

A man temporarily unemployed sought help from a Christian Science practitioner. This newcomer to Science said that what he needed most was a new suit to wear for job interviews. "Let us first see you clad in Christly garments," the practitioner said to him. "Then whatever you need will appear humanly." She went on to explain that the garments of the Christ, Truth, are the qualities of divine Mind, which man reflects; they are garments of praise, expressing the one infinite, eternal God, omnipresent Life, Love, Spirit, and Truth.

She also reminded the man of the words of the prophet, "I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness." Isa. 61:10; Soon thereafter the man received a fine suit as a gift, and a new position likewise opened up for him.
