God's Gift-Undiminishing Good

God's gift to us is always unchanging good. Leaning upon such conviction, the Psalmist could sing: "The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup .... The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage." Ps. 16:5, 6;

The true inheritance of each of us—of man, the son of God—is eternally upheld by the law of God, divine Mind. And this is the only real law there is. There is no law conceivable that can supersede or challenge the law of God and appropriate any portion of our good inheritance.

What is it, then, that tells us our good has been reduced, limited, or even stolen? Only evil, Satan, the false claim of a power opposed to God. All evil is an impersonal, unreal claim, even though it comes to human thought as a hydra-headed monster with laws of sin, disease, destruction, poverty.
