Mortals seem to be created in a state of limitation. They believe they have only limited wealth, health, happiness. But God's reflection, the real man, was created in exactly the opposite condition. He was created in a state of spiritual plenty. Man can never run out of health, of Love's ever-presence, of substance, of joy, and he knows it. The man of God's creating knows no limitation of any kind because he reflects the Mind that knows the infinitude of being.

The individual who realizes that God, Spirit, is the limitless source of man's sustenance, and demonstrates it in some degree, finds his needs abundantly satisfied. Human belief is prone to attribute such well-being to material factors alone, saying it can come only through a gift, an inheritance, or by chance. But it is a great joy to understand through the study of Christian Science that the man God created has always enjoyed abundance, and we can realize this through study and prayer.
