Supply Spiritual

In Christian Science we are taught that God, divine Love, is the source of supply. Just what this may mean will unfold in various ways through the years spent in learning Love's lessons. At first it will probably mean to us a sense of God's love toward us; that we are His children; that He will not leave us unprovided for; that we have a right to expect His ample provision, and that we shall not be disappointed. Jesus said, "Your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things."

Then as we work on, realizing God's love toward us, we learn that the problem of supply demands that we reflect divine Love. In other words, we must keep the channels of our thought clear and loving, that no sense of resentment, pride, bitterness, disdain, anger, or hate may obstruct the flowing of the currents of Love. In Science and Health (p. 2) we read of "the open fount, which is pouring forth more than we accept." That we do not receive more, is sometimes due to the fact that we are harboring some thought which constantly shuts out the divine benefits. The work to be done is therefore in our own consciousness, to cast out that which is the opposite of divine Love, to come into accord with the inflnite and eternal goodness of the divine Mind. If others have seemingly wronged us, we should feel only compassion for such a perverted sense, that can but injure itself and cannot hurt us if we are resting in a loving consciousness and a realization of the divine protection.
