WE CALL AND LOVE ANSWERS

When we visit a friend, we do so with the expectancy of finding him at home. We do not ring his bell or knock at his door with the conviction that he is away or that our visit is useless. When we look for signs of life in his home, we are not surprised to notice him moving about in the living room; or perhaps a light is shining through the window of an upper chamber. These signs increase our expectancy as we approach the door and knock hopefully for admittance. The door opens, our friend greets us, we are immediately welcomed, sheltered, and entertained.

This is a simple parable, the interpretation of which is that God, our Father-Mother, our counselor, teacher, and friend, is never aloof or absent, but ever present to answer those who call. In reality we are never separated from God. The Apostle Paul said (Acts 17:28), "In him we live, and move, and have our being." Should we believe we do not live in God, then let us remember we can restore our unity through prayer. When we seek the Father's house, we always find Him there.
