Build the economy on Truth

Major Western nations continue to seek solutions to the financial challenges in their individual economies as well as within the larger structure of the Eurozone. These and other conditions are having a global effect on the world’s economies, including the United States and China. Various solutions, including austerity, have been offered by individual thinkers and governments. Yet human solutions can only go so far. What works in one place may be disastrous in another, or may fail to address the underlying instabilities that led to the economic crisis in the first place.

The answer to these challenges rests on spiritual truth that has been proved over the centuries and is still potent today. Mary Baker Eddy stated it this way, “Trust in Truth, and have no other trusts” (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 171). To trust solely in money, politics, or financial analysis is to build on sand, which—as Christ Jesus pointed out centuries ago—is not a sound foundation. 

Jesus knew that divine Love could not be absent, and that Love was already supplying the need.
