Daily Supply

Where lives the one who is not confronted, in some form or other, with the problem of lack of supply? Ever since in the allegory Adam was sent forth from the garden of Eden "to till the ground from whence he was taken," the efforts of his progeny have centered largely around the solution of this problem. Yet, despite all the energy it has spent in getting, mankind believes it has never succeeded in getting enough! Some have little or no money, others little or no work; some lack food and clothing, others houses and lands; many are without health, without recreation, without right environment and companionship.

In this age, however, Christian Science is showing mortals the needlessness of such conditions, and is teaching them the real solution of the problem by revealing God, Spirit, as the boundless source of all supply, which is available here and now to all alike. It is disclosing the insubstantial nature of matter and the futility of looking to it for satisfaction. Can shadow satisfy the demand for substance? Since matter is always limited, always finite, how can it fill the countless needs of humanity? An unlimited supply cannot proceed from a limited source.

The real nature of our supply and the place where it is to be found, together with the price to be paid for its possession, are clearly set forth by Mrs. Eddy in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 307). There she writes: "God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies. Never ask for to-morrow: it is enough that divine Love is an ever-present help; and if you wait, never doubting, you will have all you need every moment." Now these spiritual ideas are not shadowy and far off, but tangible and close at hand. They are as real and near and available as the fact that two and two are four; and there is an idea to meet each and every need that can possibly arise, for we cannot conceive of a demand without conceiving of something to meet that demand Our "daily supplies" are the result, in a tangible form, of the activity of these spiritual ideas.
