Drawing on the spiritual resources of God

Perhaps one of the greatest fears to beset mankind is fear of being without money, for money seems most necessary to pay for food, clothing, housing, education—everything we need. It would appear that the amount of money one possesses determines the quality of one's existence.

Humanly, this very much appears to be the case, but Christian Science presents a unique approach to the problem of lack. It shows the immediate practicality of the Bible promise "God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Phil. 4:19. To the materialist such a promise may seem unrealistic: he knows that money, not God, supplies his needs and wants. But does money really meet our needs? For the hungry man lost in the desert, or adrift at sea, will the hundred-dollar bill in his wallet supply food? What is the real source of provision?
