Go ahead and represent!

Many years ago a friend of mine worked as a salesman for a pharmaceutical company. On his first day of work he called on a gruff customer who didn’t waste time listening to sales pitches. So my friend, trying to get a foot in the door for a sale, introduced himself quickly, saying, “I represent the XYZ pharmaceutical company.” The customer shrugged his shoulders and grumbled, “Well, go ahead and represent!”

A few years later my friend found Christian Science, and he learned about a different kind of representation—man as the perfect representative of God as His spiritual idea, His expression. My friend came to understand the inseparability of God and man as cause and effect and how that relates to spiritual healing and the quality of our lives.
