On Buying and Selling

Almost everyone, at some time, buys and sells something of substantial value. Some may do so daily or even hourly. Regardless of the frequency of these dealings, it is always wise to pray over a transaction before arranging the details to accomplish the intended result. In praying according to the teachings of Christian Science, one must understand the transaction from a spiritual point of view and let reasoning be based on spiritual values. As Mrs. Eddy states, "For right reasoning there should be but one fact before the thought, namely, spiritual existence." Science and Health, p. 492;

Spiritual existence is a realm apart from material existence; it is comprised of spiritual ideas rather than of material things. It is the true creation, wherein man is made in the image and likeness of God, that is, spiritually, not materially. It is the truth of being, in which this man of God's creating is complete and harmonious in every respect and dependent only on his creator.
