Limitless Worth and Employment   Leave a comment

An article by Lindsey Biggs from the Christian Science Monitor.

Where does our worth come from? A particular job? How much praise we get from a job well done? Many of us have had to wrestle with such questions.

Lindsey writes:

There was a point when I desired additional employment. I felt there were greater ways that my skill set could be used than in what my role at the time offered.

I regularly turn to prayer when I need help or guidance. Prayer gives me a clearer sense of my (and everyone’s) relation to God. I’ve found that getting a clearer view of what God sees and knows helps me experience more harmony.

In this instance, my prayers led me to write a “spiritual resume” – not to share with prospective employers, but to help me think more deeply about where our true worth lies. What I mean by this is I compiled a list of spiritual qualities I felt I expressed, such as patience, creativity, compassion, timeliness, order, self-discipline, etc.

Qualities of Value   1 comment

Beauty, wealth, or fame is incompetent to meet the demands of the affections, and should never weigh against the better claims of intellect, goodness, and virtue.

(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy p57)
