Fear and the economy
—With precarious conditions in today’s world economy –
Christian Science Monitor
But I’ve learned many lessons over the years about managing finances and supply. For one thing, even if things seem dire, there is always a way to move forward successfully. Through my study of Christian Science, I’ve come to understand God as the underlying Principle – called Love – which bases all our activities, including the economy. The operation of this Principle can be likened to the world of mathematics, which is entirely mental, but whose laws and rules are ready to be used wherever we are. As I see it, each individual is intimately connected to Love and the economy it governs because our underlying spiritual nature derives from Love. Over the years, I’ve appreciated this statement by Mary Baker Eddy, who founded Christian Science: “Never ask for to-morrow: it is enough that divine Love is an ever-present help; and if you wait, never doubting, you will have all you need every moment” ( , p. 307). I’ve found this to be true in my experience but as with any new concept, we make it our own only by using it.
