Employed by God, our dependable Life

What brings real comfort and success? Does it come from having a highly esteemed job, a healthy bank account, living in prosperous economic times?

Fear of lack has been overcome when I remember that my true purpose in work and life is to express and share Godlike qualities—the activity of Life, the caring of Love, the honesty derived from Truth, the reliability of Principle, and the creativity of Soul.
