How Rich Am I?

Christ Jesus , our Way-shower, as he went daily about his Father's business, healing the sick and comforting the weary, did not have to ask himself the question, "How rich am I?" It is certain that he had but to enumerate the spiritual qualities which God so bountifully and lovingly bestows, and which in his purity he recognized and utilized, for therein he found his true and lasting wealth.

Wisdom and spiritual understanding give durable riches and sound judgment. True wealth is found in an increase of spiritual ideas and a decrease of material desires. Mrs. Eddy tells us in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 307), "God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies." These ideas, however, must be daily acknowledged and put into practice, or else like the man in the parable we should lose our talents, having buried them under the mesmerism of human planning and living, and having failed to use them for the glorification of God.
