The Beauty of Giving

"Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give." Matt. 10:8; In this charge to his disciples Jesus set forth his conception of true benevolence. It included no money, no material thing—just the administering to others of the healing power of Truth and Love.

This healing power is ours to reflect, for we are God's spiritual ideas and we reflect all His qualities, all His capacities. So in expressing love, tenderness, kindness, benevolence, we are passing along what we have already received from our Father-Mother God and are awakening others to those same qualities in themselves. To behold one's fellow as God's perfect idea, pure and flawless, is to give him the gift priceless—the spiritual gift of healing that Jesus gave.
