Needing and Having
The answer to lacking something is having it. No matter what we may require, having it fully answers the need. And the solution to the problem of lacking some needed thing is knowing what we have as God's reflection. According to Christian Science, the true law of supply and demand is that simple. Let us analyze that law and its benefits.
To begin with, if we acknowledge God as our Father, as infinite Mind, we have accepted a basic teaching of Christian Science. Then along comes a need, a lack. It may be the lack of supply of food or clothing, of four walls to house our home, of strength to fulfill our duties, of freedom from disease, or of intelligence to make a wise decision. How, then, does Christian Science explain God's law of supply and demand?
In her writings Mrs. Eddy gives the spiritual interpretation of supply and demand as revealed in Christian Science and perhaps in no place more clearly than on page 5 of Miscellany. There she writes, "Wholly apart from this mortal dream, this illusion and delusion of sense, Christian Science comes to reveal man as God's image, His idea, coexistent with Him—God giving all and man having all that God gives."
