Substance and Supply

[Original article in German]

Supply is spiritual, therefore ever present and universal. The perception of this fact is essential to right thinking, feeling, and acting. Substance is infinite Mind, divine Principle, which maintains perpetual supply. By expressing true qualities we fulfill the law of divine Principle, and thereby come into unity with God, the source of all supply. Jesus said, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

Knowing the true God, Life, Truth, Love, frees us from the belief in lack and limitation, and enables us to perceive divine Principle, the source of all supply. God is the source of affluence. It is not only our right, but also our duty, to express the abundance of God. Lack of justice, truth, and love; of obedience, loyalty, and gratitude; of joy, health, and power; of order, diligence, cleanliness, well-being, progress, and success, does not testify of God. Mary Baker Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 453): "Honesty is spiritual power. Dishonesty is human weakness, which forfeits divine help." Honesty, as well as all other true qualities, such as sincerity, loyalty, purity, kindness, gentleness, love, selflessness, mercy, and so forth, reveals the divine Mind, and is the evidence of spiritual power and supply.
