From the July 1914 issue of The Christian Science Journal

OF all the phantoms that worry and weary mankind, perhaps none is more inconsistent with the concept of a just God and a scientific universe than the fear of lack of the necessities of existence. Nevertheless all around us we see men and women struggling to "eke out a livelihood," many of them haunted continually by the thought that want may overwhelm them despite their best efforts; that cherished children may suffer from lack of food, manhood's strength waste from want, and the hoary-haired father or mother sink in sorrow from lack of sustenance.
