Economy as a Means of Supply

Those seeking a solution to the problem of supply may, as did one Christian Scientist, find much help from a By-Law in the Manual of The Mother Church (Art. XXIV, Sect. 5), where Mary Baker Eddy writes, "God requires wisdom, economy, and brotherly love to characterize all the proceedings of the members of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist."

Seeking greater understanding of this rule, the student found that wisdom included clear thinking, discernment, balance. These, then, were necessary in order to meet the first requirement of the By-Law. Reflecting on the fact that God is Mind, she saw that, as His image, such characteristics were inherently hers and all men's, and that the ability to put them into action was a divinely established fact.
