Looking for a job?

Maybe you've heard you are one of many looking for employment. But you don't need to be overwhelmed by the apparent magnitude of the problem. There is a spiritual solution for you, a solution that's available to everyone. It involves supporting your search for a job by recognizing what your job really is.

Here is an important spiritual point for all of us, whether we're looking for a job or are now employed: Man always has something to do that's more than useful. It's indispensable. That something is to be the child, or effect, of God, who is the endlessly loving cause of man and the universe. Mary Baker Eddy tells us, "Man is the expression of God's being. If there ever was a moment when man did not express the divine perfection, then there was a moment when man did not express God, and consequently a time when Deity was unexpressed—that is, without entity." Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 470;

The first and most practical thing to do when job seeking is to identify oneself spiritually as God's reflection. We need to affirm as understandingly as we can that man is the idea of God, divine Love. That divine Love is both the governor and employer of man. And that this Love-employed man is our true identity.
