Glory bound

The seizing and terrorizing of hostages may be one means of getting political leverage or worldwide attention. Terrorist tactics may be aimed at generating such fear that observers even thousands of miles from actual attacks will allow their lives to be manipulated by the implication of future threats to human safety. But terroristic motives and actions are not bound for the true glory of divine reality. The spiritually watchful are well able to counteract the mesmeric influence terrorism would wield.

Through prayer we can prove that not even momentary glory can come through inglorious ways and means. They contradict the Biblical teaching about the source of man's majesty.

It is God, divine Love, who crowns His likeness, man, with glory that is permanent and loving to all. Yet how prone we are to forget we wear this crown of glory! Through the ages, when individuals have appealed to God, He has reaffirmed the undimmed glory of His beloved.
