Group: Woods Cross TeaM
I am ABRAHAM. What a beautiful sight to behold--the brotherhood in action. We here, who are unseen by you, marvel at your determination to carry on the Master's teachings. To gather with comfort for yourselves and one another shows a great deal of growth. Your efforts have been worthwhile. Your trials have been a great learning experience. You will know one day that all that you have toiled for was indeed worth it. Your difficult times were another step up towards our Father in Heaven.
I must say to you, my friends, you spiritual seekers, have paid a price for all that you know. You have each paid to attain spiritual meanings and values. You each have consented to continue to pay this price for your continuing education. It is only by experience that I can truly stand before you gratefully knowing that the price I offered up was small in comparison to the rewards I received.
The price I speak of is putting yourself aside to receive the greater meanings of the universe. To allow your desires to be set aside in favor of what's best for the whole. The price you have paid is the loss of your old life in favor for a new and better life. To focus on not so much what you would see as best, but what our Father would have us know is best. He who would save his life would surely lose it, but he who would lose his life for the Kingdom will be saved. Do you see how our lessons on self-forgetfulness pertain to this valued saying?
I would ask that you continue to ponder over and discuss these topics with one another. In your fellowship there is volumes of spiritual knowledge to be had. I would express to you my gratitude for allowing me to speak. I would each have you know that I know and love you dearly. Peace go with you. Until next week, shalom.
