Since all right and useful activity is controlled by its divine Principle, God, as Christian Science explains, good business depends upon Spirit, not upon matter. As men understand this fact and change their business methods so that they conform to it their business will be progressive, productive, and prosperous.

"But," some ask, "do not human demand and material supply constitute a law which governs business? Is not good business dependent upon the productivity of the men and women who work in the factories, fields, and offices? Is it not true that success and profit are influenced by luck, weather, and other material conditions?" For centuries many have thought so. But today Christian Science reveals that the law governing all right business is not material, physical, or mortally mental, but wholly spiritual. It declares that genuinely good business reflects the divine Mind and its unlimited ability; reflects Principle and its ceaseless and harmonious operation; reflects Life and its vitality; reflects Truth and its stability; reflects Love and its inspiration and motive power. The Apostle Paul understood the basic law of all growth and success when he wrote (I Cor. 3:6), "I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase."
