Good Limitless

In Christian Science we learn that God gives all to each. This bare statement may arouse questioning and distrust in the thought of one who reads it for the first time; but careful reasoning will disclose the fact that the robbing of Peter to pay Paul theory is true only on a material basis, where both quantity and quality are limited. How different the things of Spirit! Is any portion of Truth's bounty withheld from the earnest seeker? Is Love limited? Even the human sense of love pours itself forth with abiding confidence in its superabundance. Is divine Principle the possession of one to the exclusion of the many?

It would be no satisfaction to a follower of Christian Science to feel that he had more of good in any direction than his brother. Our Leader tells us that "happiness is spiritual, born of Truth and Love. It is unselfish; therefore it cannot exist alone, but requires all mankind to share it" (Science and Health, p. 57). This is the pith of the whole matter, that there is an unlimited fountain of good open to all. This good is not material, but is an outcome of God, and is therefore of the nature of Spirit. It may be wisdom or understanding, it may be love or life,—whatever it is, it is always spiritual in its nature, and therefore real, forever above and beyond any possibility of injury, loss, robbery. Recognizing this, is it any wonder that our Leader says, "When the real is attained, which is announced by Science, joy is no longer a trembler, nor is hope a cheat" (Science and Health, p. 298). This must be the joy which "no man taketh from you," and the hope which is "as an anchor of the soul, ... and which entereth into that within the veil."
