My present position in life, what I am and what I have,...

My present position in life, what I am and what I have, I consider as a direct outcome of having been at a critical moment enabled through Christian Science to take a Bible text as my guide.

For seven years I had been chief engineer in a factory, when the manager one day suggested—on account of alleged lack of funds—that I should cede some claims to royalties on certain inventions, which the company owed me. I refused to agree to such an arrangement, as it seemed entirely unfair. The next morning, when studying the weekly Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly, I read in Proverbs, "Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye." (The Swedish Bible translation has it, "the bread of the envious.") This seemed to me to be clear orders, and I felt confident that I could trust Him who gave the message. Error's suggestions about a family of six to be provided for, with quite insufficient funds, were silenced with the assurance that God would provide for those who obediently follow His directions.
