addicted to good

IT'S ONE THING to shop for a purpose, quite another to shop as though the actual buying of something, anything, is the purpose. I've always loved shopping. New clothes, new shoes. At one time in my life, though, it seemed as if every time I went to the mall, I wanted more stuff—most of which I didn't need. The constant bombardment of ads and incentives to spend more only made the temptation worse. Finally, I realized I'd have to get my shopping addiction under control or my credit card bills would be sky high!

I've relied on Christian Science for healing for over ten years now, and I knew prayer would eliminate this feeling of neediness for material things. As God's perfect, spiritual children, each of us is only attracted to good. No one needs to be a slave to materialism, however well disguised it may be.
