To grow spiritually we need to identify with God the Father and with Jesus.
In the seminary I learned to meditate and to open my soul to contemplation, the object of which was to think, feel and love like God does.I tried to see everything through the eyes of God the Father and Jesus. When you and I do this, we enter a world of values totally foreign to the human way of thinking.
In the eyes of God, there is ONLY ONE FAMILY here on earth, the family of ALL God’s children.
God does not see color or nationality. These are human values. God sees the world as belonging to him. National boundaries in God’s eyes are illusions, which God allows us to indulge in, as long as we truly and sincerely care about our neighbors.
Jesus’ view will always be looked upon as irrelevant, as unpatriotic and out of touch with reality. Even many Christians today think that to talk like this is irrelevant to real life.
Spend 15 minutes today trying to see our world as God sees the whole world.
THIS FAMILY – LAUGHS OFTEN. BELIEVES BIG. PRAYS HARD. TRUSTS GOD. LOVES EACH OTHER. FORGIVES ALWAYS!
