God's Law of Supply
Problems of supply are common to humanity. The need for food, clothing, and shelter is perennial and in modern society has become multiplied many times. Christian Science recognizes human needs but approaches the problem of meeting them from a spiritual basis. In so doing, it follows Christ Jesus' instruction in his Sermon on the Mount to seek God first, and accepts his assurance that whatever may be needed will be supplied. Only when supply and demand are translated into spiritual terms can it be realized that a divine law exists that may be invoked to the end that every human need is invariably supplied by God, divine Love. Thus God equates true spiritual demand and supply.
Mrs. Eddy explains how to do this. She says, "God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies."Miscellaneous Writings, p. 307
"How does this work?" one may ask. Let us start with shelter. Housing is primarily mental. Before a material dwelling unit can be built, an architect must see it mentally. The concept comes first, but concepts are not material; they are mental. In the proportion that they are God-derived, they are also spiritual. The Psalmist saw that man dwells "in the secret place of the most High,"Ps. 91:1 and Christ Jesus promised his disciples a place in his Father's house, wherein he envisaged "many mansions."John 14:2
