Why Are We Doing It?

In the hustle and bustle of today's world most of us find that we are called upon to give liberally of our time and energy and meet the demands of exceptionally busy lives. Many of us approach these requirements conscientiously. How can we accomplish more and find more satisfaction in jobs well done?

Do we ever stop to ask ourselves what it is all about, why we are doing it? Perhaps there are many answers. But all our accomplishments are in vain if our response is not that we are doing it for the glory of God.

Mrs. Eddy writes, "Glory be to God, and peace to the struggling hearts!" Science and Health, p. 45; As we acknowledge God's hand in all our undertakings, as we become grateful to God, knowing that He alone directs our ways and keeps us under His wing, as we persist in giving God the glory due Him, we no longer find our struggles agonizing or futile. Instead, we go forward peacefully assured.
