ALMOST EVERYWHERE FINANCIAL AFFAIRS are at or near the top of the agenda.

In Washington, there's an investigation into allegations that Goldman Sachs, a major investment bank, created flawed products, sold them to investors, and then bet that they would fail. In the United Kingdom, budgetary issues have been a major topic in the recent parliamentary elections. To reduce the UK's high budget deficit, serious cuts in public spending are expected, and there is great concern about who and what will be most affected. Meanwhile, Germany, France, and other countries are working with Greece to prevent a financial meltdown that could affect the euro and other European nations. These are only some of the areas where finances rouse concerns.

As the founder and leader of the Christian Science movement, Mary Baker Eddy was no stranger to serious financial, legal, and business challenges, but she always let God be her guide and she always came out on top. In her writings, you'll find more than once this statement from the Bible: "Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass" (Ps. 37:5).
