The Supremacy of Spirit

A dictionary defines "supremacy" as "the state or quality of being supreme; highest authority." On page 427 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy writes, "Immortal Mind, governing all, must be acknowledged as supreme in the physical realm, so-called, as well as in the spiritual."

In the story of Joseph, as given in Genesis, we find a wonderful proof of the supremacy of God, Spirit. We read in the narrative that "Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age;" and, because of this seeming partiality in the home, Joseph was hated by his brethren. His dream of the sheaves bowing down to his sheaf, which stood upright, and of the sun, moon, and eleven stars doing obeisance to him, created a sense of envy, hatred, malice, and jealousy among his brethren.
