"All sufficiency in all things"

The Apostle Paul clearly discerned the glorious unfolding of good that comes through obedience to divine law. He saw that the false sense of depression, discouragement, or fear has its positive antidote in spiritual right thinking; for man is subject only to divine Love. In his second epistle to the Corinthians he writes, "And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: ... being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God."

It is plain that this all-sufficiency, this bountifulness, includes ample supply for every need. In God's kingdom there is always abundant good, and there is, therefore, no deficiency or lack. Good being infinite, it is the perpetual possession of man by reflection, and this fact, realized, finds expression in the meeting of every human need. In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy states (p. 7): "The 'divine ear' is not an auditory nerve. It is the all-hearing and all-knowing Mind, to whom each need of man is always known and by whom it will be supplied."
