Ready for advancement?

Christian Science has much to offer anyone who desires to advance in worthwhile work. It's perfectly natural for people to want to progress, to utilize their capabilities and talents in unselfish ways. Have you ever thought of God as the source of this desire?

In Science and Health Mrs. Eddy writes, "God expresses in man the infinite idea forever developing itself, broadening and rising higher and higher from a boundless basis." Science and Health, p. 258. We have the desire to progress because our identity and individuality are actually far greater than appearance would indicate. Man comes from God, Spirit. Man is the infinite expression of what God is—eternal Life, Truth, and Love. In reality, we're each the spiritual man of God's sublime creating, the very outcome and witness of His divine perfection.

Advancement, rightly viewed, points toward man's unceasing witnessing to God's unceasing creation. And genuine progress is certain for the individual who is honestly striving to let God motivate all his ambitions.
