True Philanthropy

The world's view of philanthropy is all too often the limited one of bestowal of vast material wealth for humanitarian purposes. Those alone to whom such privilege is vouchsafed by limited mortal belief are the ones whom the world counts wealthy. Such a standpoint would eliminate from the possible practice of philanthropy most of the human race.

Do we as Christian Scientists accept this view? We cannot do so if we recognize that our opportunities to benefit the human race are unlimited, since God, good, is infinite in His immortal being and expression. Such opportunities therefore do not depend upon matter or material conditions; neither can they be limited by any such thing.
