Unemployment—an opportunity for growth

So you've lost your job? With no warning, no time to adjust? Take heart! In the spiritual realm, where God is all and His goodness abounds, man is never deprived of right activity, never loses his source of supply. God is omnipresent good, and man is God's likeness. It is as impossible for God and man to be separated as it is for the sun and one of its rays to be parted.

On the human scene, unemployment is an opportunity to reverse the picture of terminated growth; to expand one's mental horizons; to find unlimited possibilities for rewarding activity. We were able to prove this in our family when three members of the family were laid off in a time of considerable unemployment. Each was able to turn this experience into a blessing resulting in better employment.

To be employed is to have one's abilities utilized. As the child of God, man is fully employed right this moment. God as Principle employs His spiritual offspring in expressing integrity and obeying divine law. Soul employs man in reflecting beauty, grace, and order. The child of God is required by Love to manifest spiritual affection and unselfishness.
