THE LAW OF DEMAND AND SUPPLY

The one who is working out his human experience with the help of Christian Science knows that it holds the answer to any problem of supply and demand. He knows that the demand can never be more than the supply, because they are inseparable. We can never have one without the other. Someone may say, "That's ridiculous, because demand is continuous and supply comes only at intervals, and sometimes only after a struggle, and a tough one at that, and sometimes not at all!"

Material demands on the individual seem unusually severe these days. Taxation and the inflated prices of the necessities of human existence make great demands on people's bank accounts. From a human standpoint these demands seem sometimes more than the individual can cope with. But in Christian Science we do not succumb to mortal opinion and conditions. Instead, we endeavor to obey Jesus' instructions as given in Luke (12:22–31): "Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. ... For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you." Christian Science teaches that since God does the demanding, He also does the supplying. He must, because God is All. It also teaches that substance is not something which can be hoarded, which we can lack or have too much of. Substance is spiritual, and man is never without it.
