Man's Supply Is in Spiritual Ideas

A Great blessing to a family of Christian Scientists came in an increased understanding of Mary Baker Eddy's words on page 307 of "Miscellaneous Writings": "God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies. Never ask for to-morrow: it is enough that divine Love is an ever-present help: and if you wait, never doubting, you will have all you need every moment."

These words had often been used to rout a fearful sense of lack or of concern for the morrow; their truth had brought comfort and reassurance to human consciousness. But a larger unfoldment concerning the supply of spiritual ideas which limitless Spirit provides for its children brought an increased sense of God's allness. This was evidenced in "daily supplies" in the following instances.

When measles appeared, the foregoing sentences were remembered. It was seen that disease results from our believing that we lack an understanding of God as All-in-all. This belief of lack, in whatever form, is dispelled as we recognize the ever-present supply of God's spiritual ideas. These ideas, coming constantly to man, affirm his health, his freedom, and ensure the interchange of good alone between his brother and himself.
