Anxious thoughts as to our supply of needful things for the morrow, as well as anxiety for our health, is causeless, since our supply is in God—Good; but until we know this through actual demonstration, all are anxious to a greater or less degree.

I would say to those who are now working out this problem of God's plenty: never let the evidences of the senses, and suggestions (of mortal mind) as to the morrow's threatened calamities, make you afraid. Although I have seen our meal barrel nearly wasted and our oil cruse almost empty, and nothing in sight wherewith to replenish them, when the threatened to-morrow came there was no lack. This threatening lack of what is needful will never be experienced, if we remember God's promises of His ever-present protection, and follow the teachings of Science and Health.

We need not fear that our understanding of Christian Science is insufficient to make this demonstration if we are working faithfully; for God's promise is, "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able to bear it." That this promise is true I know from practical experience, for when the clouds seemed darkest and most dangerous, there was always a way of escape opened for me.
