This lesson reminds us that no matter what we have done or are doing, there is no time better than the present to present ourselves to God and to accept his word. We can live in surrender to God.
There is no end to all the peace and joy, And all the miracles that I will give, When I accept God's Word. Why not today?
Why should I wait, my Father, for the joy You promised me? For You will keep Your Word You gave Your Son in exile. I am sure my treasure waits for me, and I need but reach out my hand to find it. Even now my fingers touch it. It is very close. I need not wait an instant more to be at peace forever. It is You I choose, and my Identity along with You. Your Son would be Himself, and know You as his Father and Creator, and his Love.
Quote of the Day
"One of the principles to remember about money is how important it is to pay for services rendered. If we begrudge someone else the right to make a living, we are begrudging ourselves the same. What we give, we will receive, and what we withhold will be withheld from us."
