And God Said…

The further Science advances, the closer it gets to God, and His Creation of the Universe

AL

While Philosophers hypothesized that the Earth was Round as early as the 6th century BC. The concept was not adopted by the entire scientific community. “Flat Earthers” made up the “Consensus” of the worldwide scientific cartel until the early 1500’s.

Did you know that the Bible described the Earth as Round?

“It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in;”
Isaiah 40:22 (Written around c. 515 BCE – 70 CE.)

Was Modern Physics Defined in Genesis?

As a young boy, Dr. Albert Einstein always fascinated me. Sure, science was intriguing, but my teachers were not intrigued by my occasional ambivalence towards physics and science teachers.

However, Einstein was different from most scientists and physicists. He always seemed to be more interested people than science. Like me, he was a dreamer. Instead of focusing on a specific part of science. Einstein frequently said, “I want to know the Mind of God”, explaining that he wanted to know how Everything works.

Spending most of the last years of his life focused on finding a simple, eloquent explanation of everything; Einstein believed that God would not make a complicated structure created out of Chaos. Instead, he oft talked about an orderly, simple structure that was the same in the vast Macro Universe, as it is in the microscopic Nano Universe. As Above, So Below.

Einstein struggled in those last year’s searching for what he called a “Unified Theory”. A formula that would tie everything in the Universe together; with a simple, eloquent explanation. Sadly, his struggle wasn’t only with science and math. He was continually challenged by the scientific community that had reached a “consensus” around Quantum Mechanics, originally proposed by Niels Bohr in 1913. Bohr presented an idea that the universe was a complete “Game of Chance”. Leading to the popular term, “Chaos Theory”. This prompted Einstein’s retort, “God does not play dice”. “Quantum physics was not wrong”, Einstein explained, “it was simply incomplete”.

While it was widely accepted that Einstein’s theories were correct, and led to a revolutionary understanding the Macro-Universe of planets and solar systems. The same theories would fall apart in the Atomic Universe. In the “Micro-Universe” of Atoms, Bohr’s Quantum Mechanics was the theory that functioned best. After Einstein’s passing, a split developed in the scientific community. Some followed Einstein’s theories in understanding the Macro-Universe. Most followed Bohr’s theories working on the Micro and Nano Universe; Atoms, Electrons and such.

Building on Einstein’s vision, in 1973; Dr. John Schwarz and Dr. Michael Green introduced a theory that they said, “had shown that it was possible for the first time, to write down a single equation, that could explain all the laws of physics, all the forces of nature — a proverbial ‘theory of everything’”. This was the first introduction of “String Theory”.

As detailed in the article “String field theory could be the foundation of quantum mechanics” from November 3, 2014, author Robert Perkins supported Einstein’s approach. In his article, Perkins states that two USC researchers had proposed a link between string field theory and quantum mechanics that could open the door to using string field theory—or a broader version of it, called M-theory—as the basis of all physics. Stating that rather than use quantum mechanics to validate string field theory, the researchers worked backwards and used string field theory to validate quantum mechanics.

All of this is way above my pay grade, as is all the Physics and Science of String Theory and Quantum Mechanics. Still, simple seems better to me.

So, with all of this physics discussion, you may be wondering, “What does any of this have to with getting closer to God?”

What if I told you that the “String Theory” was the basis of the Universe proposed in the Bible over 6,000 years ago?

String Theory proponents explain that all the Universe is made of the same matter. Dust for our purposes. The same dust makes up Human Beings, Cars, Cement Buildings and so on. What makes them different is what String Theory is all about.

String Theory states that the difference between you and your car, or a tree and a mountain is simply the vibration of sub-molecular strings. String Theory goes on to explain that all the Universe is made up of extremely small vibrating “Strings” that binds all Dust or Matter together. These “Strings” vibrate at different frequencies defining whether the Matter will be You, or your car.

  • Webster’s Dictionary defines String Theory as: a theory in physics where all elementary particles are manifestations of the vibrations of one-dimensional strings.
  • Webster’s Dictionary also defines a Voice as: the expiration of air with the vocal cords drawn close so as to vibrate audibly.

So, a Voice is a way to create a vibration and vibration transforms matter.

“The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is majestic.” Psalm 29:4

We’ve all learned in Genesis how God “Spoke” the Universe into existence and the many times that God Created and Destroyed with his voice throughout the Bible.

GENESIS 1:1-10:

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

And God said, “Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.” So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so. God called the vault “sky.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day.

And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.”

“And God Said” appears throughout the Bible. At the beginning of the Bible, in Genesis, God Spoke the Universe into existence:

God said, Let There Be:

  • Light
  • Firmament (Vault) – Protection from Outer Space (think Ionosphere)
  • Water & Earth
  • Seed Bearing Plants
  • Stars
  • Fish & Fowl
  • Living Beasts & Creatures
  • Man
  • Man, to have Dominion over All Food
  • Land & Seas

Not only was it the voice of God that created the Universe; according to Science, we were all created from the same dust held together by vibrating energy.

Science is getting closer to God all the time.

Everything!

OCD

OCD, A Blessing or a Curse?

During lunch with a friend recently; we talked about the revelation of my OCD (Obsessive, Compulsive, Disorder) tendencies. He smiled and started talking about our friend who is a “Classic” OCD case. Our friend was always a slave to his idiosyncrasies. We reminisced how our friend used his OCD as an excuse to fail. It seemed all his failures were related to his “disorder”.

It is an exceptional blessing to be who God created me to be. Without my attention to detail and unrelenting drive to get things right, my life would have been so radically different. God has blessed me throughout my life with keen eyes and extraordinary hearing. Both bless me with intense discernment for all things, big and small. The other side of my attention to detail is an intense desire to get things done perfectly. Thankfully, early on, God taught me not be a slave to things that are not in my control. “Let Go, & Let God.” Working to remember that “Done is better than Perfect”; and always following God’s lead to be aware, using tough times for growth, not self-condemnation.

In my walk with God over the last fifty years, God has led me to see Him in EVERYTHING. That is one of the greatest blessings of being OCD. Seeing God in the smallest details. Sure, when you gaze at the stars, the grandeur of His design is awe inspiring. The same magnificence is found in an Ant Hill or Bee Hive. My “personality disorder” has favored me with so many abilities. Thanks to God, by His design, there truly is no “disorder”.

“The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in his way;” Psalm 37:23

Sometimes, my attention to detail has led me to seeing God in the “Not So Godly”. Music from the likes of Jethro Tull, prophetic words from someone that had never stepped foot in a Church. Seeing Everything as God’s plan and design; nothing is wasted, all things come from Him. For me, it is impossible to look at the stars, or the insect world, and not see His clear and perfect design. The continuity above and below is clearly by plan, not happenstance.

Seeing God in Everything is exactly that. Everything; Big, Small, Good and Bad. In the Micro and the Macro.

How Great Thou Art!

Above All Else, Guard Your Heart!

Like many words; Heart can mean so many different things. A physical Heart keeps the human body alive and in rhythm. “The Heart of the matter” is a description we use for getting to the essential fundamentals. While putting your Heart into something, demonstrates extreme commitment. Clearly, at the Heart of most of these definitions, is that “intangible” Heart; the core of who we are.

Guard Your Heart - Heaven

We can all feel it. Sometimes it manifests as our “gut feeling”, as our “conscience” or “intuition”. Aren’t our definitions of the non-physical Heart, and our Soul, one in the same?

“For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.”  Romans 8:14

So many times, our Heart is in Direct Conflict with our Head. We think we know what we should do. Then, our Heart challenges our Brain. Which way do you lean when it’s Decision Time?

Popular Culture would lead you to always follow your Brain. After all, “knowledge is power”, and civilization wouldn’t be where it is today without the Brain. Right?

What of all the commitment, sacrifice, bravery and resilience of those that gave their lives for others? Or those serving in the military or as first responders? Did they follow their Brains or their Hearts?

If there is one part of us that is truly connected to all things, isn’t it what we call our Heart, our Soul?

The Power of the Heart is not just as a receptacle. The Heart is how we connect and communicate in all situations, and with each other. Shouldn’t your Heart broadcast good things? Like, Patience, Kindness, Peace, Joy and Love? Just like your music player can only stream what is in it, so your Heart can only broadcast what is in it.

“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”   Proverbs 4:23

Every time you let Anger and Hatred in your heart, it replaces Love. Every time you let Fear and Doubt in your Heart, it’s replaces Faith. Negative thoughts are generated in the Brain, not the Heart. Ever since the Garden of Eden, the devil has used our knowledge and brain power to gain control of our life.

Focus on God and fill your Heart with Love, in All Things. Love God, Love People; the foundation of a true “Walk In Love” and a walk with God. Be mindful of what you let in to your Heart. When your Heart Overflows with Love, it can only broadcast One thing. Love!

Guard Your Heart!

Manification

The Quest for Wisdom and Understanding…

Manification-prayer

When we boil away everything that people do in their lives to attain the desires of our hearts. Don’t we all simply seek wisdom? Seek to understand?

Starting with that first time we see a brightly colored toy… Why are we drawn to it, what is it? We seek it out, we touch it. We even taste it trying to figure out just what it is. So, the journey for knowledge begins. As humans, it never stops. Until, on that last day, we finally close our eyes. Even then. Aren’t we probably paying close attention to what happens next? Is there a bright light? Are any of our family there after we pass? Do I see my life pass before me as I go? All, for the sake of understanding.

If you’re like me, we apply our knowledge and understanding to provide comfort and perspective for our life. “I know the reason I got fired.” I coulda, shoulda done that. My degree means that Im fully capable to do this job.” I can do this, I saw the YouTube video. If I cram all week, Ill be ready for the test.

Is it any wonder then, as humans, we apply “our” knowledge and understanding to everything in our life? Especially the things we don’t understand. When we think of situations, good and bad. We view them exclusively from our perspective. “I would have done that differently.” Heres how I handled that. Why did they do that? It would have been simpler, my way. You cant let people do that to you, here’s what I’d do.”

Don’t we also apply this thinking to the world? “That leader is crazy!” Oft times, not working to understand their complete situation, or their comprehension. Instead, we apply our knowledge, to their decisions, and deem them Crazy. Albeit, a lot of decisions are crazy. Like with most of us, the decision probably makes perfect sense to the person making it.

As a Christian, my life has been blessed with God’s wisdom and understanding. However, it seems the more turned over to Him, the less is needed to know and to understand. After all, He is the God of the Universe. His will be done.

Humans use their knowledge to “Manify” everything to help them understand. Have you ever said something like “My computer doesn’t like me”, My phone is in a bad mood, or “this thing has a mind of its own”? Really? Doesn’t our understanding tell us that inanimate objects don’t think or feel? Still, we apply human traits to them. Don’t get me started about how much we do this with animals. Especially with our pets that are “just like one of the family”.

“Manifying” complex issues help us to cope, to “wrap our heads around the problem”. A lot of us enjoy watching the latest space adventures on TV or at the movies. Men and women traveling the universe in search of life. Have you ever noticed that the life we find, looks and acts a lot like us? The best explanation of the “Manification” of adventures in space I’ve heard, came from the creator of Star Trek, Gene Rodenberry. He said he merely wanted to create a Cowboy Western in Space; with Ray Guns instead of six shooters. Simply said, he was taking something very complex and making a clear analogy to a human experience. With that, things like Warp Speed and Food Replicators became more fathomable.

We “Manify” Machines every day. Why? Don’t the robots we see in movies and commercials look and act like Humans? They don’t need to. Go spend some time in a modern manufacturing facility. You’ll see thousands of robots. All shapes and sizes. Not a human form among them. Still, to grasp the concept, we “Manify” them. Usually including eyes, a nose and a mouth that they don’t need nor use.

So too, we “Manify” Christianity. Working to understand God’s teachings, but from our perspective and understanding. We relate to Christian concepts by applying human notions. Not that this is bad. God does this throughout the bible. Much like the first time a child asks their parent where babies come from. God, like most fathers, could explain the entire process, in detail. However, what good would it do; given the comprehension of the child? Isn’t that how, as parents, we end up with stories about Storks, Tooth Fairies and Santa Claus? God loves us, he knows what we can and cannot handle.

The challenge is not when God “Manifies” something. It’s when we, as humans do. “Manification” shows up in how we limit the power and the will of God. We apply our perceptions to His power and abilities.

“That’ll never work.” I dont understand how I could be healed of this? Sure, I pray about it. But money doesn’t grow on trees.” We can’t wrap our heads around a Miracle… so we “Manify” something that is pure God. As Humans, all things are NOT possible. With God, All things ARE possible.

“And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.” Job 28:28

Letting go and letting God is not about God. He’s got this. Letting go is all about letting go of our Human perceptions and limitations…

Once we find God, seeking wisdom and understanding becomes seeking only Him.

The Key

The Key“Let Go of the Rope!”

Aren’t we all looking for that Key? The Key that unlocks the mysteries of life. That opens the door to an unrestricted existence? One, simple understanding that lifts the burden of obligation? Ah, to never have to balance a checkbook again. Finding that perfect marriage, to that perfect person. Complete acceptance in any social situation. Never again wondering, how I am going to do this or that, or, what do “They” think.

Getting the key is oft times a monumental step, albeit daunting. Dad giving you the key to the family car. The key to that first house. Your boss handing over your first key to a private office, or getting the key to your first business. Or, when you give your car key to your sixteen-year-old. Daunting indeed.

As Christians, we often believe we’ve got it all figured out. Still, we need to balance checkbooks. Relationships can be difficult, and we continue to fall victim to peer pressure. How can that be? Understanding that we are a continual work in progress, life can still be tough. It seems we apply all we learn in Church, yet life continues to punch us in the face.

Not that I have it all figured out. I don’t. God has been working on me for years, bringing me closer to him; farther away from all the stuff of the World. Looking back, I’ve noticed a simple understanding that has filled my life, eliminating a host of hardships.

Do you remember playing “Tug-O-War” as kids? Maybe you still play. It’s been a while for me, but I always loved it. A team effort that looked to be winnable only through brute strength. As our team got better, we realized it was more of a “head” game. All about strategy that took the best advantage of the available strength. Our strategies always included “Psyching” out our opponents before the match. Mainly so that they would start the game doubting their abilities. However, my favorite move was the “fake out”. That glorious move when all at once, our team would give slack in the rope to the other team. Instantly, they would think they “had” us. Usually, the other team would let up at the first sign of a slack in the rope. With a shout, our team would jerk back with everything we had. “Hooking” them like a fish on the line. We won more matches with that move.

You might be wondering what does this have to do with “The Key”? Think of it as an analogy of our walk with God. We start thinking that our “Brute Strength” will get us through everything in life. Then we give our lives to Christ. Do we? Whether we are pulling on the rope; asking God for what we believe we need. Or, those times when we give into God, praying, “Your Will Not Mine”. All the time, ready to yank back on the rope when We believe it’s needed. Isn’t “The Key” to let go of the rope? Truly give it ALL to God.

Through out my life, when I would let go of the rope and let God have it. He has never let me down. When we weren’t sure where the next dollar was coming from. Where we would live? How we would eat? Giving it all to God, He always had our back, without fail. Sure, we weren’t dripping in money, gold and diamonds, but He always provided.

“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”Matthew 6:33

There was the time I dropped out of High School. Thinking my life was never going to be what I dreamed, scared and frustrated I gave it all to God. Had I not dropped out, I’m not sure that I would have met my bride Kayleen. Certainly, ordered steps into a wonderful, blessed life, with God lighting our path. More recently, when I gave up alcohol and pain pills. On my knees, with the fear of losing everything, I gave it all to God. He not only carried me through. From that day, all desire and thought of using were gone. Wiped out entirely. That is the God factor for me. When you give it completely to Him, it goes away. Completely. So many times, when I have planned things out on my own, holding on to the rope… While things might improve, they were still there. Tempting and taunting me me, pulling back on the rope.

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. – Hebrews 10:23

The Key? Let Go and Let God!

Simple. Love God, Love People!

Love God Love PeopleLove is All You Need!

Growing up, being told What to Do was just about the worst thing for me. After all, what kid likes to be told “clean your plate”, “do your chores” or the worst, “Pick Up Your Room!”?

Is it any wonder that we would push back on something called Commandments? Especially Ten of them. For me, probably like most of my generation, when someone would mention the Ten Commandments, my first thought was always of Charlton Heston. Once I got that picture out of my head and began to focus. All the “Thou’s” and “Shalt’s” would get in the way. Being a casual (lazy) reader, it was so much work, like a different language.

Then, one day, someone introduced me to Matthew 22:37-39. Answering the question “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”. Jesus responded by saying, “’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ For me, that summed it up in a few, simple words. Jesus was saying… Love God, Love People”. Not a Thee, Thou or Shalt in it! Truly words to live by.

Those four words are the essence of being a Christian. If all of us could only follow those two simple guidelines of love. Like the song says, “What a Wonderful World it would be”.

Over the last couple of years, I’ve come to understand that those simple four words, encompass all ten commandments. “Love God”, covers the first four and “Love People” the final six. Wow! What would Charlton Heston have done with that? Standing on the mountain top with a lot smaller tablet? Certainly, it would have made for a shorter movie. Starting each commandment with Love, instead of Thou, I might have even paid attention.

Growing up in the 60’s and 70’s was all about love. While some took it to the extreme with “Free Love”. Most believed it was all about loving one another in the biblical sense. Our culture was permeated with Love. It was in our music with songs like “All You Need is Love”. It was throughout our politics as well. Love was the original basis of the Peace crusade. Sadly, greed and vitriol eventually engulfed the movement. Love was also the core of the Civil Rights protests. Led by Reverend Martin Luther King with statements like “I love you. I would rather die than hate you.”

So often I see today’s protests and think about those days…

One thing is missing. LOVE.

BEE the TREE

BEE the TREE and the FOREST will TAKE CARE of ITSELF

“…seeing the root of the matter is found in me?” Job 19:28

Bee the Tree -3

Over the last several weeks, Trees, Bees and Metaphors have been saturating my thoughts. It seems God has been helping me to understand His plan for my life through allegories, parables, music and images. I love it! After all; don’t we all enjoy a good story, good music, and good art?

Oft times I recall my favorite communicators of history; Abe Lincoln, Ronald Reagan and of course Jesus. All taught through storytelling with a message. Oh, and the many lessons learned from the poignant lyrics of some of my favorite musicians. Albeit some rather obscure musicians. And from the creation of the world, the stories told through the beauty of art and imagery; are too vast to catalog, recalling the tattered cliché, “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words”.

Over the years in my walk with Christ. If I have learned anything, it is the importance of complete submission to God, in ALL things. For some, that might seem like a startling or obsessive idea: complete submission and obedience, to things unknown, and unseen. However, the word of God is not unseen, and for those in harmony with God’s Promise, God is not unknown.

Recently God has led me to write several stories that until today, I thought were mostly unconnected. Such are the ways of God. ALL things are connected, and ALL things work together for good.

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”Romans 8:28

These unrelated titles; “What Forest?”, “There is Truth in all Things”, “Are You Just A Metaphor?”, and “The Bee, The Brick, The Wall & The Honey”. Each, with their own distinct and separate message. Or so I thought.

Thinking back to where this all started, I believe it was Mother’s Day this year. On this special Sunday, I was looking forward to hearing one of my favorite speakers at Church. In what is becoming a wonderful tradition, our Pastor’s wife, Pastor Ashli Van Horn, takes to the pulpit with powerful, God inspired messages, from a Mother’s perspective. This Mother’s Day was no exception.

As usual, Pastor Ashli was ignited with God’s spirit and delivered an inspirational message. Explaining how, as the Body of Christ, we need to stand together, strong, as a family rooted in Christ. For those that weren’t there, I highly recommend watching the video. Here’s the link to the video, Mothers Day Message, Pastor Ashli Van Horn.

Pastor Ashli used an analogy based on the powerful Sequoia trees of the Sequoia National forest in California. She detailed how these magnificent trees; some that grow as tall as 250 feet, with a circumference of 30 feet, are wholly dependent on each other for stability and support. Ashli went on to explain how these glorious trees, towering so high above the earth, it hurts your neck to see the tops; are connected by an inter-locking Root system so massive, that it is only rivaled by the trees themselves. One look at an imposing Sequoia will easily take your focus off the forest.

The Bee-Honey-Brick-WallLike the Bees that we talked about in “The Bee, The Brick, The Wall & The Honey”, the individual trees take care of one another. Through a complex, shared root system. The massive trees sustain each other by sharing water, nutrients and strength. Who would have thought that the tallest trees on the planet are wholly dependent on the Forest?

At no time, do the trees “fend” for themselves. Can you imagine what might happen if one of these brilliant creations would “take their roots and go home.”? It’s simply not an option. From their fragile beginnings, the sprout’s roots grow and intertwine with all the trees in the forest. The forest of shallow roots permeates the ground below. Forming a root system as massive as the trees themselves. The roots provide unconditional support and strength to every tree in the forest. With the sustenance of the forest, these wondrous, individual trees are completely free to grow and prosper; unhindered by the daily need to acquire the food, water and nourishment needed to survive.

Like the Bees in our earlier story, with each Bee concentrating on the wellbeing of all the bees, the Hive takes care of itself. Gone are all thought of self, and the perceived rewards of serving oneself. The Hive flourishes! So too the Forest prospers as well. The needs of every tree are met by their intertwined roots. As Humans, it is when we become the servant to all, we prosper. As Jesus taught,

“…But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all.” Mark 10:43-44

Jesus-HumilitySo, as with the Body of Christ, the strength is in the body, or in this case the roots. The tallest trees on the planet find their strength in helping others. Free from the worries of the day and the fight to survive; each tree towers above all others, as does the entire forest. Isn’t this truly God’s design? This design saturates our world. We see it in Bee Hives, Ant Colonies and throughout the Animal world. Was this our sacrifice in Garden? All for the sake of knowledge?

“And all the trees of the field shall know that I am the LORD; I bring low the high tree, and make high the low tree, dry up the green tree, and make the dry tree flourish. I am the LORD; I have spoken, and I will do it.” – Ezekiel 17:24

I’m reminded of a story from my childhood where a man visited both Heaven and Hell in a dream. He told his wife of his surprise to see the ground of Hell covered with beautiful, ripe fruit of all kinds. Seeing hordes of people walking around, the man noticed that no one had elbows; making it impossible to pick the fruit and eat it with arms that would not bend. Needless to say, there were a lot of hungry faces. As he left Hell and arrived in Heaven, the man was astonished to see almost the exact same scene. Hordes of people with no elbows. A ground covered in beautifully ripe fruit; but with one distinct difference. The people of heaven were picking up the fruit and feeding it to one another.

While reviewing my writing, I am thankful for God’s Divine guidance. It is apparent, not only in content, but also in continuity throughout all the recent stories. We talked about Bees with their “Servants Heart”, and how by serving the hive, all flourished with Gods reward of abundant Honey.  We referenced a Master brick layer’s direction that taught “Focusing on the Brick, the Wall would take care of itself.” Understanding with each individual Bee selflessly working for the benefit of others, the hive would take care of itself. In a story inspired by a song from Stevie Wonder, we established that being honest and truthful was in keeping with God’s word, and an act of Love. We also recognized how being too focused on a specific obstacle, could distract from God’s vision for our lives. As we dug into the World’s view of Christians, we observed how letting others define who we are as a Metaphor, could lead to an understanding based on the Worlds interpretation, not reality. All in all, we recognized the power of God through what Jesus defined as the most important commandments; to Love God with all our heart and to Love others as ourselves.

…“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” – Matthew 22:37-39

love-shoesSure, we all want to be strong individuals. Taking complete care of our loved ones. From birth, men and women alike, are encouraged to “Stand On Our Own”, or to be the “Best We Can Be”. So often, these teachings, like so many from the World, lead us to focus on ourselves. As we talked about “by taking care of the Brick, the Wall will take care of itself.” Doesn’t Christ teach us that the best way to take care of ourselves is by loving others? When we tear down the walls of self and ask Jesus into our hearts, self-dies. As a Christian, the way to be your best, is to take all focus off self and become a servant to all.

Love God, Love People

Bees, trees, bricks, walls, roots and forests. All different ways at looking at God’s divine design. Ultimately describing the same structure.

The body needs selfless individuals, focused on others; so that ALL individuals will prosper, flourish and grow strong. The individual, when stripped of the need to provide essentials for survival, blessed with the unconditional support from the body. Is free to flourish, becoming the best, strongest and tallest individual it can be. All in a body of the strongest and best.

A simple design. God’s simple design that yields God’s divine prosperity for all.

Bee the Tree and the Forest will take care of itself.

“…do not be arrogant toward the branches. If you are, remember it is not you who support the root, but the root that supports you.” Romans 11:18

To be a servant it just takes one step. One Drop of Love!
