Refuse to manipulate others!

I remember well one old movie in which the heroine used her feminine charms to get whatever she wanted. I thought at the time that however harmless this sort of thing may seem on the surface, it is a form of manipulation. Those poor fellows in their ignorance didn't have a chance against those fluttering eyelashes!

Manipulation, however innocent it may appear, is a denial of God as the only creator and governor of man. When we believe that matter governs and attracts, we are dishonoring divine Spirit. In reality the only power we have is what we reflect as God's spiritual idea. Materialism is not power; God never made anything opposed to Himself.
