Remembering that we are one with God, we begin to recognize the glory that lies within us. It is not arrogant but humble to realize the perfect love in which we were created and shall always remain.
The glory of my Father is my own.
Let not the truth about ourselves today be hidden by a false humility. Let us instead be thankful for the gifts our Father gave us. Can we see in those with whom He shares His glory any trace of sin and guilt? And can it be that we are not among them, when He loves His Son forever and with perfect constancy, knowing he is as He created him?
We thank You, Father, for the light that shines forever in us. And we honor it, because You share it with us. We are one, united in this light and one with You, at peace with all creation and ourselves.
Quote of the Day
"Our defenses reflect our wounds. But no person can heal those wounds. They can give us love, innocently and sincerely, but if we're already convinced that people can't be trusted—if that's the decision we've already made—then our mind will construe whatever someone's behavior is, as evidence that our previously drawn conclusion was correct."
