Be ye Faithful

In obeying this mandate man reaps a blissful recompense for well doing. Never could the apostles have been in accord with divinity had they not expressed God's ideas. Faithfulness to God is a recognition of His ever-present power. Spiritual blessings come through seeking and praying, in acting the verities of God's ways. Brightness enters our lives as we open the portals to let the Light flow in, and Truth is ever ready to illumine the darkest cavern.

As our relation to God is better understood, we learn our duties to our fellow-man, and we should not increase our brother's burdens with our human propensities.

When we seem to be drawn out of the atmosphere of divine Love by a sense of weariness, when our burdens appear to be heavy and our demonstrations impossible, we must try to remember in our trials that God is very near, and that only our material senses shut us out from His sustaining power. Our daily battles with the ills of the flesh prove that our problems are being met. When repose in apathy our advancement is retarded. It we listen, Truth will uncover to us our errors as fast as we are prepared to overcome them. The laggard tarries at the cost of spiritual growth. Yesterday's errors should be swept aside (i.e., overcome) to prepare us for a higher conception of Truth on the morrow.
