There’s a lot of evil going on in this world every day, and it’s hard not to get impressed by it if one doesn’t stay spiritually alert.
The news is filled with reports of conflict, disaster, lack and loss. Chats with friends often gravitate to health woes, and human reason likes to speculate on bad outcomes that could occur.
But we don’t have to participate! There is a healthier and happier way to think and live.
God is not a presence of inevitable doom. God is a presence of harmony, health and peace. And our purpose in life is to enjoy it! And help others find it too.
Jesus Christ was surrounded by suffering people reaching out to him for help. Despite the material evidence of vast struggle, he did not let his thinking descend to the level of those in need. He stayed above it. His loftier spiritual perspective enabled him to extend a hand of help to those reaching out, and he lifted them to a higher place.
We have his example to follow.
We can’t help our fellowman if we jump into the quicksand of error with them. We must keep our mental feet firmly planted on the ground of Truth so we don’t sink. Then we can reach out and help.
You have keen spiritual sense that is permanently tuned into spiritual truth day and night. Spiritual sense is aware of God’s presence, knows the activity of Love and feels the power of Truth.
Don’t be impressed by evil. Compared to God’s power and might, it’s unremarkable. It is to be defeated and disproved. And you can be an active participant in its unavoidable demise.
