To many the problem of supply appears to be a difficult one to solve. Throughout the world today there are thousands being cared for through charity because through fear, lack of faith in God, and other elements, the normal ways of earning a livelihood seemingly have been withdrawn. Everybody will admit that such a situation is far from desirable, and many recognize that it is also unnecessary. It is dawning on humanity that something is radically wrong with its thinking. when great numbers are deprived of food and clothing, or forced to accept charity, while the world is filled to overflowing with everything necessary for the human race.

Our Master and Way-shower, Christ Jesus, once said, "Beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth." He also said, "Ye cannot serve God and mammon." And then he gave us that beautiful illustration of how to take no anxious thought about our food or our clothing. He asked us to consider the fowls of the air, how they are fed, and the lilies of the field, how they grow and are clothed. And he summed up the situation in these words: "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
