The True Possession

I HAD a very great desire for a home of our own, but knew that the way to get it was not to pinch or to give to our Cause with a niggardly sense. Some years we gave as high as one third of our moderate income to Science in one way and another. It looked, humanly speaking, as though a home would be a far distant achievement at that rate, but my faith was good, and I believed God would supply it in His own time and way.

After working five years in this way an opportunity to buy an exceptionally good home for people in our circumstances presented itself, the avenues opened up, and we bought it. One year later, by various means upon which we had not counted and had not foreseen, it was paid for, and our faith was justified in this manifestation.

The question of human need seems to be one of no small importance among Scientists, and I trust that the little in this line that I am so grateful for having been able to realize, may be encouraging to some others whose means seem to be limited. I earnestly believe that all needed supply will be mine in proportion as I sacrifice self, and that there is no need to fear.
