"BRING YE ALL THE TITHES INTO THE STOREHOUSE"

The human being often believes that his supply depends on the grace and favor of another, in other words, he believes that supply exists outside of himself. This is a delusion which handicaps him. He must learn that supply always comes from God. Supply, being an element of God, is spiritual, and belongs to man by reflection. Without supply, man would not be complete. Supply includes all that pertains to man's completeness and happiness.

Lack of supply expressed in a sick business or limited finances stems from erroneous thought, or mortal mind. To be free from lack, one must seek healing within, not without, himself. In the Bible we find this perfect recipe for unfailing supply (Mal. 3:10): "Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it." The house referred to in this passage is the consciousness into which one brings the tithes to receive the blessings. Mary Baker Eddy in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 595) gives us a definition of "tithe," which in part reads "homage; gratitude." We must fill our consciousness with gratitude for blessings already received and acknowledge the goodness of God. As we do this, the windows of heaven will surely open and pour out blessings, blessings of courage, strength, hope, confidence, health—ideas which in turn give us daily supply.
