The Cost of True Living

As spiritual law has been revealed in Christian Science and as every day it is being more and more clearly understood by an increasing number of people, its demands upon mortals are leaving them bankrupt indeed. For what assets has mortal mind with which to meet the demands of Principle? None. Repentance and reformation alone can pay the debts of unrighteous thinking and living.

No question is so agitating the human mind to-day as the high cost of living. Not only in one little section of the world but throughout its entire length and breadth the same problem is demanding a solution. As this state of universal chemicalization goes on and the human mind is stirred to its depths, so that all its inherent hidden evil beliefs and passions are brought to the surface; as it is brought face to face with its own hoarding greed, selfishness, and hatred, it loses all consciousness of the presence of good, which alone can supply man, and vainly strives to meet its own self-created need for food, clothing, shelter, and nourishment.
