The True Work of Reflection

The view that one's work is comprised chiefly of human activity inclines one to believe that supply must be gained by the sweat of one's brow or by so-called human smartness. Many problems, including the finding of suitable employment and satisfactory reward for the work done, arise from this material concept of work. Such work is often regarded as something which has to be tolerated because it is the only way to support oneself.

Christian Science reveals that man is made in the image and likeness of God, Spirit, and that he is therefore spiritual. This man of God's creating, the only real man, is permanently active as the reflection of God. Because reflection is his only occupation, we see that as we identify ourselves as the man of God's creating we become engaged in our Father's business. Reflecting God is the activity in which Jesus was always engaged. The Master understood that God is the only motive power and that man reflects the divine activity.
