A Lesson from the Lean Years

Christian science brings to the student comforting assurance of God as Love. It reveals God as ever at hand, and makes practical the many Bible promises of His care and provision for His children. A study of these accounts in the light of Christian Science shows their practical import, relates them to our present experience, and opens human consciousness to see that God is Mind, the ever present, exhaustless source of good, providing for man's every need.

Christian Science is the law of God, and the correct application of this law is equal to solving every human problem. One who had seen this proved true in various instances found that her only material source of income had diminished until it was not adequate to provide for daily needs. There was a small savings account, and this was drawn upon to supplement the small income in paying the monthly bills. Gratitude was felt and expressed that there was a savings account to help out in this temporary need. When, however, the next month this was again necessary, the thought came that perhaps it was not right to turn so quickly to this source, and that a higher demonstration of supply should be made. Recalling Mrs. Eddy's words (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 60), "Soul has infinite resources with which to bless mankind," the student felt that perhaps it was a limited sense which saw this savings account as the only means of meeting the need.
