Spiritual Abundance

So much depends upon the way in which we view things, that it behooves mankind to see the prime importance of getting the right view, which is, of course, the spiritual view. Finite sense, ignorant of the infinite possibilities of real being, hedges itself about with matter and bases its conclusions on its own limited outlook upon the universe and man. Instead of looking above and beyond matter into the inexhaustible resources of divine Principle, Love, by which man is maintained and sustained, it takes stock of matter, in order to determine how much substance it possesses.

To be sure, Christian Science requires manifestation as proof of our position as students; nevertheless, it teaches us to cease measuring substance in accordance with the abundance or lack of material things in our possession, and to begin measuring it in accordance with the all-sufficient supply of ideas emanating from the divine Mind, God. Said the prophet, "Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it."
