“Tell the Truth, Say you prayers, and Help other people”

by mikea44646 on June 2, 2011

Yesterday I was asked for “Good Advice” on the spot with no context.  My Reply was “Tell the Truth, Say you prayers, and Help other people”  – that was something that I got from my mother when I was a teenager and it  helps me greatly. At The Family Foundation School, many of the adults and students freely share a reading or meditation that we find helpful or interesting etc.  

Today’s reading aligns with the advice from my mother prompting me to share it with you:

June 2 Meditation for the Day from the book Twenty Four Hours a Day 

Meditation for the Day

You cannot believe in God and keep your selfish ways. The old self shrivels up and dies, and upon the re-born soul God’s image becomes stamped. The gradual elimination of selfishness in the growth of love for God and your fellow human beings is the goal of life. At first, you have only a faint likeness to the Divine, but the picture grows and takes on more and more of the likeness of God until those who see you can see in you some of the power of God’s grace at work in a human life.

Prayer for the Day

I pray that I may develop that faint likeness I have to the Divine. I pray that others may see in me some of the power of God’s grace at work.
