Friday Meditation - I Work With God's Law

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up. Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil…….
1 Corinthians 13:4-5

Here is the formula for personal poise; holding emotions in full control. Then we find patience and kindness at work in one’s affairs. Love is never jealous, grudging, spiteful, never assumes the many forms of envy, or of self-praise, boasting, or hypersensitivity. Love is well proportioned, well fashioned, adding to ordinary decency the positive spirit of graciousness.

Love transforms all negative emotions into positive, creative powers. A creative religion is creative throughout all of a person’s relationships. It is never an ivory-tower affair. In the midst of the turmoil and tribulation of ordinary human existence, Love is a power that overcomes all things.

It is universal Spirit in action through the individual, refining, restoring, and redirecting existence into fulfilling experience.

The self is encompassed by the over-self, finiteness is included in Infiniteness, the selfish will is tempered by Divine Grace, and the result is an experience of Divine Love.
