Wealth: what is it?
"Jesus of Nazareth was the most scientific man that ever trod the globe," Science and Health, p. 313. writes Mrs. Eddy. She could also have described him as the wealthiest man ever known. Jesus was rich beyond measure, but not in the worldly sense. He understood completely that God is the supplier of all good to man.
Although we have no record that he owned property, a house, flocks, or had substantial financial resources, he could never have been regarded as poor, deprived, or lacking anything. And on more than one occasion he supplied food for thousands at a moment's notice. What does this tell us?
Mrs. Eddy gives us an insight into Jesus' proofs of God's love when she says, "A limitless Mind cannot proceed from physical limitations." Ibid., p. 256. Jesus must have understood that God, the loving Father of us all, bestows on each of His children an abundance of good and that this good is represented in unlimited ideas. When he needed anything he reached out for the idea that was always present to supply that need. The idea, inherent in God, was immediately available, and the need was always met.
