Maintaining a High Standard of Living

The world has heard much in the present era of what is called a high standard of living, the expression being applied to the conditions regarded as essential to maintaining a person or class in an accepted status. But as it has become generally recognized that a large proportion of the desired possessions are attained at the price of habitual debt and through the sacrifice of the greater good to the lesser, many thinkers are realizing that there must be something wrong with the standard of measurement.

Christian Science exposes the fallacy of reasoning based on the assumption of the reality and substantiality of matter, and supplies the gauge by which to measure the scale of human living by its approximation to the spiritual. The real man, Christian Science declares, is the image and likeness of God. He lives at the standpoint of spiritual activity, opportunity, and dominion. He is dependent upon the infinite resources of Mind, possessing, through reflection, limitless spiritual ideas. The mortal concepts of poverty and riches are unknown to God and the real man.
