Provision that's not a matter of luck

A Few weeks ago I received one of those mailings notifying me that I was a finalist in a national sweepstakes. Although I don't participate in sweepstakes, before I knew it, I found myself mindlessly sorting through the paperwork, feeling somewhat foolish as I glued on the stamps for the Jaguar I might win as an extra prize. I don't even want a Jaguar! But why did I feel foolish?

I began to apply spiritual reasoning to this question. I know that God, infinite good, is the source of all that I need—and that man is actually the expression of His goodness. And this good, being entirely spiritual, is eternally available. It is not subject to economic ups and downs. It is not subject to luck or even statistical probability. It is God's abundant love, for me and everyone.
