God-given Increase

"Divine Love blesses its own ideas, and causes them to multiply,—to manifest His power." These words of Mrs. Eddy from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 517) bring home to the student of Christian Science the importance of cultivating receptivity to spiritual ideas, for it is through these ideas that the nature, character, and qualities of God are made manifest. Mortal existence is made up solely of material beliefs; mortal mind itself is not real, and its supposed progeny are without entity.

Love for God and man enabled our Leader to be receptive to God's thoughts, or ideas, and, guided by them, to build up the Christian Science movement. Her students must make Love the basis of their work; then they too will be blessed by an increasing spiritual understanding. Jesus' parable of the leaven which was "hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened," illustrates the activity of a divine idea.
