Take the burden out of work

Most of us spend a good portion of our daily lives working. And since our success and satisfaction in our various roles on the job, at home, in church, and in the community depend on how we view the work connected with those roles, it’s crucial to get the right sense of work.

The Bible talks about work from the very first chapter, where it relates the story of creation. Genesis tells us, “God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good” (1:31). Then, “the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made” (2:1, 2).

What does it mean for God’s work to be finished? Christian Science explains that since God, good, is infinite Mind, everything there is exists as an idea in divine Mind and expresses completeness and perfection. How could God’s ideas be anything less than complete and perfect? Divine intelligence is infinite and is always revealing itself in harmony, beauty, and order.
