Business, and the Kingdom of God

One whose business had shrunk almost to the vanishing point, whose debts were mounting and whose bills were unpaid, took his problem to a Christian Science practitioner. The picture he painted of himself and his business was to human sense a most gloomy one. He had an appointment for the next day to meet one of the officers of a large manufacturing corporation which was his chief creditor. The company already had extended credit far beyond the point where it would be considered justifiable.

"What," he asked, "am I to do? I no longer have any credit rating. I cannot get a loan from any bank. What can I say to my creditor? I must have goods to do business, and yet I cannot pay for what this company already has let me have."
