Equality of Opportunity

It has always been part of the mortal theme to suggest that opportunity depends upon person, place, and circumstance, and that, since these vary, opportunity is not always present. However, the one who relies on God finds that an orderly unfoldment of right ideas fills his present need of understanding. He learns that he never lacks opportunity if he will claim his heritage and act as the son of the Father, the One who created him and sustains him. He further learns that the Christ-power comes to the individual who has emptied his consciousness of self-limitations, who has accepted the truth of himself and placed it in operation.

It is encouraging to think of Joseph, who might have been despondent and unproductive as a result of any of several misfortunes that came to him. When he was sold into slavery by his own brothers, his future indeed looked dim. He was carried off to Egypt and turned over to an officer of Pharaoh. But God was with this spiritually-minded man, and his work brought blessings upon himself and his master's house.
