Sincerity and Success

Businessman, carpenter, lawyer, musician, student—each wants to be successful. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes, "A deep sincerity is sure of success, for God takes care of it."The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 203 ; Poor environment, lack of qualifications, past mistakes, and other threats to progress in one's career are no match for a genuine striving for spiritual understanding and right action.

One who lacks qualifications to advance in his occupation but honestly wants to do a good job goes to work to get the knowledge or training needed. Even if this is not easy to come by, the one who is praying in Christian Science as intelligently and humbly as he knows how for guidance will be led to the necessary help.
