After fruitlessly seeking employment abroad, in a capital city, for weeks, a friend and I were quite discouraged. We had inquired about job openings at many American-owned companies, thinking English would be used. But we found not a single firm where it was spoken. How could we communicate?

One Monday morning, when we began yet another day of searching, I told my friend that we knew better than this. Both of us, as Christian Scientists, knew that God, the one Mind, never ceases to guide and care for His children. We had been so busy searching for jobs that we had neglected the counsel of Jesus: "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matt. 6:33).
