Resource Unlimited: The Bible

The world is engaged in an intensive search for the energy, financial, and food resources to meet present and future human needs. The Bible, however, in the vast spiritual resources it contains is a life-resource at hand, dependable and actually inexhaustible. It provides a record of the lives and spiritual insights of the prophets and other clear thinkers of the past from which we can learn invaluable lessons to meet present-day needs and problems.

In her Miscellaneous Writings Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, says: "God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies." Mis., p. 307; None has affirmed with greater conviction than Mrs. Eddy that the Bible abounds in rich resources of spiritual truths. She relates that after her recovery from a severe injury—a recovery which came as she read a passage from the New Testament—she withdrew from society for about three years to search and study the Scriptures to find the source and cause of her healing. Of that period she writes: "The Bible was my textbook. It answered my questions as to how I was healed; but the Scriptures had to me a new meaning, a new tongue." Retrospection and Introspection, p. 25;

In pondering Mrs. Eddy's intensive and penetrating study of the Scriptures as she searched to learn how she was healed, one can see how the long and reappearing thread of healing throughout the Bible must have come through to her perception with special significance. The reappearing thread of healing is one of the most impressive discoveries to be made in one's study of the Bible.
