THE WEALTH OF TRUE BUSINESS

Many today are engaged in the pursuit of wealth. Time and energy are expended in amassing riches. But what is wealth? Is it something material to be accumulated with a view to gaining greater security in matter? If so, then the pursuit is illusory, and time and energy are wasted. The belief of wealth in matter, like the belief of life in matter, is illusion. A sleeper may dream he possesses colossal wealth, but on awakening find he has nothing. Materialism is the dream of a dreamer who is sleeping deeply in matter and is unaware of Spirit.

The pursuit of wealth is right if the wealth we seek is spiritual. Christ Jesus said (Matt. 6:33), "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." What are "all these things" to which the Master referred in this statement? He had been speaking of the birds and flowers and drew a lesson from nature concerning the wonderful way in which the need of every living thing is supplied with form, beauty, and progressive unfoldment. With regard o the latter he said (verse 28), "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow."
