Using What We Have in Our House

In overcoming the false belief of lack and limitation and experiencing the abundant unfolding of good, it is essential that we use what we have in our house, that is, our understanding of the truth about God, man, and substance; that we use what we already have gained of spiritual understanding to annul the claim of lack. We also can rightly use all that we have of material provision.

On page 578 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy renders the sixth verse of the twenty-third Psalm as follows: "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house [the consciousness] of [love] for ever." This helps us to understand that we express harmony proportionately as we dwell in the consciousness of Love. Thus we see why it is important that we appreciate and utilize the good we have, thereby making room for and rising to a fitness to receive and intelligently and wisely use more.
