For we are laborers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building. 

I Corinthians 3: 9


Living in a universe of activity we are expected to be efficient and creative.  Our work, whether in office, factory or home is that part of the universal activity which we have selected to do. Therefore, we should do it with ease, with efficiency and with pleasure.  We confuse issues and think we are earning money, instead of seeing our true position as a center through which the universal activity of mind focalizes itself by means of us.  The Mind of God is our employer.  It asks that we be receptive to its Ideas, Its plans and Its purpose.  The inner Spirit knows what to do, how to do it, and does it when we believe in It.  As we turn to the indwelling presence of God and affirm Its action through us as our true employment, we work easily and efficiently.  Then we can render service to God and to man.

Today I work for God, and His Mind directs my every move.  I dedicate my thoughts, my hands and my heart to Divine Intelligence and Divine Love.  All my activities take place in the One Presence and are the out-picturing of One Power that is forever releasing Itself through me.  Every idea I need for efficient service comes to me from the greatest Universal Mind as and when I need it.  I refuse to worry, for I have complete trust in the Mind of God which does all work by means of me.  I refuse to shirk responsibilities for I do what needs to be done under Divine Inspiration, and every task is light and easy.  God is my employer, and my work is efficient, creative and right.
