Infinite Good for Infinite Growth
A spiritual approach to giving & receiving
Christian Science teaches that God is both infinite and good, and that man is God’s image and likeness. If the first chapter of Genesis in the Bible is correct, and we are the image and likeness of God, then we are the ceaseless intake of God’s infinite giving. While mortal man seems to face lack and limitation, the spiritual image and likeness of God reflects all that God is and has at every moment. Here are some promises from the Bible:
Fear not little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.
Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all of these things shall be added unto you.
Bible Stories related to supply:
- Elisha helps a widow avoid selling her children into slavery by filling vessels with a small cask of oil
- Jesus feeds the multitudes with seven loaves of bread and two fish.
- Jesus instructs Peter to catch a fish, look in its mouth, and use the coin he finds to pay taxes
Here are some citations from the Writings of Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer and founder fo Chrstian Science:
Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need. -Science & Health
God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies. Never ask for tomorrow: 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. -Miscellaneous Writings 307:1
