Christ jesus said, "I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst." He also taught his followers to pray, "Give us this day our daily bread." On page 17 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy interprets this spiritually as, "Give us grace for to-day; feed the famished affections."

Too often supply is thought of in terms of the outward manifestation, such as food, clothing, shelter, money, position, and so on. We learn in Christian Science that when supply is sought and found in spiritual ideas, it satisfies the fundamental need, which is mental and spiritual. Improvement in physical or outward conditions follows as a natural consequence of the improved thinking. This is according to the Scriptureal promise, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

A precious evidence of supply is the mental peace, joy, and confidence that come from knowing there is but one infinite and only power, one omniscient, omnipresent, and omniactive Being, whom we call God, or good. In this infinite Being, also known to us as Mind or Truth, is to be found the scientific, demonstrable fact which we can healingly apply to every human situation that may arise. Scientific facts or truths, understood and rightly applied, deliver us and save us from error and discord of every kind. They are our true supply.
