“A Matching Pair”

The topic of this Sunday’s talk is about matching our actions with our beliefs–what is known in church-speak as “walking the talk.” This is not only about being authentic but it is the true pathway to transformation. Best of all, there is a formula set of rules for achieving transformation.

Transformation- This is the character trait that Jesus was talking about in His ministry. Our Christ Nature within each of us yearns for this transformation every day…every month…every year. As Saint Francis said, “Preach the Gospel always. And if you have to, use words.”

“Release Resistance and Experience Acceptance”

Verse:

But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. [40] And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloake also. [41] And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.  Matthew 5:  38-40

Acceptance—I release resistance and experience acceptance.

In acceptance, we see the world as it really is. In resistance, we expect to change the past. Acceptance sounds like an easy concept to adopt. It takes little effort to feel spiritual when life unfolds according to our desires and wishes.

“The Seven Jewels of Wisdom”

The path of wisdom knows Spiritual law and is eager to remain in integrity because True knowledge has been internalized, and we recognize the path of wisdom is in doing the right thing. We drop the illusion that conformity will give us wisdom. 

Having a profound reverence for Spirit assures us that as we live our lives focused on God and responding to God-nudges, we will find the deepest happiness and the promise of abundance in all areas of our lives. The Seven Jewels of Wisdom are keys to growing spiritually and receiving the Grace of God each and every day.
