No lack where Love is

Slowdown... recession... unemployment... futility... such dismal suggestions permeate much of the current news and clutch at individuals and nations like a deadening miasma. Yet there's an answer to this fear-laden contagion, and to the circumstances that may appear to justify it.

With the pure understanding of Truth and Love we can meet, on the basis of man's God-given dominion, the temptation to believe in personal uncertainties and economic perils. Christian Science makes clear the meaning of divine Love's omnipotence for us. It shows us how to prove the practicality of Truth's action. When Truth is understood in its practical Science, we find it dispels fear, brings about right adjustments, and replaces lack with sufficiency.

Availability of divine help amid want and social disorder is a leading theme of the Scriptures. Great turmoil prevailed in Bible times. Yet the triumph of spiritual power over material conditions shines through the prophetic teachings and is illustrated repeatedly in the surmounting of dangers and adversities by Old Testament figures. It is illumined further and confirmed unmistakably in New Testament teachings—and especially in the mighty proofs of God-bestowed supply and provision given by Christ Jesus and his followers.
