If we carefully examine the reason for the world unrest of to-day, especially the manifestation of labor strikes, we must unmistakably trace it all to one source, lack or the fear of lack, and all because of the belief that money is substance,—whereas the only possible lack there is, or can be, is lack of the understanding of God. As Christian Scientists we are commanded to go "into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature," and to "heal the sick." Lack is a very sick belief, the thought of limiting God. Here, then, is work we all can do; but before we can heal the world we must heal every trace of lack suggesting itself as our own consciousness, and obey the command, "Physician, heal thyself," before we can help others.

Since God is true substance and is omnipresent, then what and where is lack? Lack and the allness of God are incompatible. If all is Mind, then our supply must be in Mind. If God is infinite Mind and man is the idea in that Mind, then nothing and no one can limit or control the amount or quality of our thinking or prevent us thinking infinitely and perfectly. In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy says (p. 13), "Love is impartial and universal in its adaptation and bestowals." This shows us clearly that our abundance or poverty all depends upon our own reliance on the one loving, divine Principle.
