As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
1 Peter 4:10
that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
My kingdom is not of this world.
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
“Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”
All this spiritual nonsense (-;
It doesn’t make sense in “this world”, but it is wisely aimed to guide your attention — here and now — into “my kingdom”.
The instrument to guide and refine your attention is your discernment: your love and interest, your natural intuition that life is much more than what your person makes you believe. If you only wait you might miss what is eternally here and now.
Be like a little child…
Be, not do.
The Bible does not aim at improving our person, but for you to know the Truth, by being born from above. 2
Born from above, not be stuck in appearances — body and flesh, right or wrong — but to be rooted in Love, to know God, as the sole cause of the phenomena of life.
