What I learned on my quest for riches

I Desired a materially good, rich, and happy life. I eagerly admired expensive things, envied wealthy people, coveted their high positions and good things. I tried to acquire much money by relying not only on hard work, and other people's advice and help, but on personal will. The means I employed to make money were not always honest and God-based. My expectations usually failed to come true, and I became very unhappy, full of fear, discouraged, and sick. I asked myself, "How can I desire rightly?"

I found the answer to this question through the study of Christian Science. God's guidance became more real to me as I learned about the goodness and supremacy of divine Love. This one God is the divine Principle, all cause and effect. I also learned that the real man is God's image and likeness. Being harmonious and immortal, man lacks nothing good. He is eternally under the care of the omniscient Father-Mother God.
