Is It Money We Need?

In Proverbs we read, "Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven." If we look to money for our wealth, we get disappointed. There is only one thing that will bring us lasting security: an understanding of God. As the same chapter urges, "Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding." Prov. 23:5, 23; Supply, like health, is spiritual; it is not a material condition.

Whether one considers material dependence a problem or not, it is essential to understand the true meaning of substance as supply. We may go happily along for years with a good salary, profitable investments, an inheritance, a prosperous business, or a good provider in the family. But if these are not the outcome of thought based on the true evidence of infinite, divine substance, they will not be lasting.
