Our Never-failing Supply

The view which sees supply as something that must be earned by the sweat of the brow or by mere human smartness has not brought lasting success to anyone, and many have found that material methods present no way out of their difficulties regarding supply. Earnest students of Christian Science soon learn that lack of any kind is but a limiting suggestion of the carnal, or mortal, mind; and they do not, even for one moment, accept suggestions of lack or limitation. They keep clearly in thought the understanding of God, Spirit, as the source of supply, and they identify themselves as the man of God's creating, who always expresses the affluence of divine Love.

Before gaining an understanding of Christian Science the writer regarded material activity as the true source of supply. Every transaction seemed good in proportion to the profit it made. He worked solely for personal gain and as a means of increasing his material comforts. It appeared right to place the making of money first and the giving of service second. It was this erroneous concept of matter as substance that produced in his experience fear, greed, and much selfish competition. This view caused him to regard his work as something that had to be tolerated because it was the only way to avoid lack and limitation.

However, through Christian Science he learned the true nature of work and supply, and as he began putting his new understanding into practice, the way gradually opened for harmonious, fruitful living. He learned that his true work was to express Godlike qualities in his daily activities and found that the fruitage of this true work blesses all. Through recognizing that his true selfhood reflected these Godlike qualities he was able to express honesty, humanity, and service. Progress and success replaced selfishness and greed. Prosperity and consistent supply increased in proportion to his obedience to the law of divine Love. He proved that the heavenly Father glories in sustaining and maintaining His children.
