The power of seeing man’s perfection

Many years ago, when I was president of a nationwide fast food chain, I observed a young man applying for work in one of our restaurants. One of his hands was closed and paralyzed, and the social worker who accompanied him to the job interview said he had very low intelligence.

On seeing the manager about to politely turn him away, I stepped in. I’d learned through Christian Science to see man as perfect and complete, as God sees every one of us. Holding to this view, I noticed attributes that could qualify this applicant to do some of the needed tasks, and I wasn’t impressed by the physical limitations. Instead, I was attracted to his desire to work and appreciated a beautiful spirituality in him, expressed in such qualities as humility, cheerfulness, and sincerity.
