THE PATTERN FOR SECURITY

One of the main fears of mankind is that of insecurity. How to ensure health and gain sufficient supply to meet present and future needs is a leading question of the hour. Mankind has looked to the material body and to various human methods to sustain and produce health, and to bank accounts, salaries, or successful individuals for financial security. In many countries programs of both health and social security are being planned or are already in effect, their purpose being to provide means of giving the masses a reasonable sense of security against sickness and poverty. Benevolent though these plans may be, they can never give mankind true security, for this desirable state is a condition of divine Mind, God, and is not attainable through material means and methods, but through the understanding and demonstration of Mind's harmonious government of man.

In several instances in the Old Testament we find the pattern for both security and insecurity. The Israelites experienced security and prosperity when they were obedient to the law of the one God, and insecurity and want when they were disobedient and worshiped other gods. Therefore Joshua admonished his people (Josh. 24:15), "Choose you this day whom ye will serve."
