Employment for all provided by divine Love

From The Christian Science Journal - September 16, 2016

Originally written in French, this first appeared in the September 2016 Portuguese, Spanish, French, and German editions of The Herald of Christian Science.

Christian Science, based on the life and works of Christ Jesus, teaches us that God, divine Love, provides His children with everything they need daily. At the same time, the belief in a human and material nature that can lack what it needs causes fear and worry. This belief in lack is the result of an ignorance of the uninterrupted presence of good, for all, everywhere.

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, describes this fact about divine abundance in her main work, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need” (p. 494). 

She defines God as Principle, which means that God is supreme, consistent, provable, and universal. Through affirming and demonstrating these qualities of Principle, we know that we do not have to comply with beliefs in lack: lack of health, relationships, resources, abilities, etc.
