Unlimited resources

The study of Christian Science has taught countless numbers of people that relying on God, Soul, to meet one’s needs lifts thought to an awareness of limitless good, always accessible and just at hand. This Science challenges the conventional truism that resources of health, employment, companionship, or any other necessity are finite and subject to fluctuating circumstances, laws of time, economic cycles, medical theories, and rules of human nature. 

The idea that our resources are infinite may appear incredible to one who is used to expecting much less. Such a concept might even seem a form of overreaching, lacking in Christian humility. Yet to demonstrate the presence of spiritual abundance, one actually needs to cultivate humility, along with perseverance and gratitude, just to name a few of the spiritual qualities that bring us into accord with the law of omnipresent good. 

“Soul has infinite resources with which to bless mankind, and happiness would be more readily attained and would be more secure in our keeping, if sought in Soul,” Mary Baker Eddy tells us on page 60 of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. And how are these ideas to be found? The answer, of course, is through prayer—that willingness that allows thought to become God-directed and expectant of good, dismissing a limited view of our situation, whatever it may be, and revealing the ideas Soul is providing to meet our need.
