"ALL THAT I HAVE IS THINE"

Christian Science is accurately described as true, logical, encouraging, enlightening. But perhaps the adjective which has the greatest appeal in this troubled world is "practical." The Apostle John said (I John 3:2), "Now are we the sons of God"— now, the eternal present. We may therefore expect to experience the benefits of being the sons of God right now, where we are at this very moment.

Because at this moment we seem to be conscious of living humanly, we should expect our growing comprehension of the great truth of spiritual perfection to be manifested in the nearest approach to perfection that human living can achieve. Christ Jesus said (John 10:10), "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." So it is legitimate to expect to live even now in a sense of abundance of good, which in our present state must necessarily be exemplified by good and sufficient tangible evidence. We are always in the position of the elder son to whom the father said in the parable of the prodigal (Luke 15:31), "Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine."
