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?

Mrs. Eddy, writing from the depth of her own experience, tells us, "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need." Science and Health, p. 494. Through Christian Science we learn that God is indeed the Father-Mother of man, to whom we may turn confidently in time of need. To learn this spiritual fact is the greatest blessing that can come to anyone. To adhere to this spiritual fact will bring continuing blessings in one's experience.
