HOPE—REACHING UP WITH BOTH HANDS

AN ANCIENT STORY of India tells of a queen who was a victim of a feud with a rival family. When the rivals "win" the queen in a wager, they attempt to humiliate her by unwinding her sari. In a film version of the story, the queen clutches her sari with one hand and reaches up to the Almighty with the other. Then she gives up her attempt to save herself and reaches up with both hands. As she does this, sari becomes endless, protecting her and exhausting her foes.

I love this message that salvation comes from putting all hope and trust in God. It can feel hard—even out of the question—to let go of material hopes and trusts, but the practice of spiritual healing has demonstrated that undivided hope in God allows us to experience a power of good that nothing on earth can equal.
