I am ABRAHAM. Welcome my friends. How I look forward each week to meeting with you all together. How wonderful is it to see the seeds of your ideas planted and your fellows tending to the growth therefrom. Your dignified manner leads each one to be open to the spreading of the idea seedlings. Your care for one another as individuals and children of the living God, see to positive growth.
With the business in today's mortal living, always are we trained to protect ourselves watch over our shoulders for those who might be against us. Ever are we ready to defend and keep vigil over our place in the world. We have been witness to such an example of this behavior through the Master’s apostles of old. Judas certainly was one to believe the world did not welcome him. He was always wont to believe his well being was that of his own responsibilities, and that some had the power to make him stumble.
Thomas was at times given in to emotionalism and could be rather introverted feeling isolated– not in desire to share his feelings for fear he would be misunderstood. Peter, on the other hand, could verbally charm and make his way through any given situation that would threaten his sense of well being, and yes this was an extension of the ego.
Many of the apostles were at times moody and difficult. Always did the Master rally them together with the common focus that they were each spiritual brothers on a quest of the Kingdom. Oft-times, He would remind them that the Brotherhood was often a great help for emotionalism or individual difficulties. He could be found telling His apostles that one another's well being for this did indeed open the channel for the cycle of spiritual energy to continually flow.
As I said before, Judas had chose to deny the full Urantian experience ever worried about his well being, always watching his own back, yes. There, was the block in the flow of living spiritual energy. When Judas had turned inward and was self seeking, did he change his capacity to receive any divine assistance.
Nathaniel on the other hand, was always first to aid his brethren with a humorous line or an offering of assistance. He could be found on the lighter side of seemingly serious topics and ever drawing out his fellow apostles to be open and share yes. Nathaniel was at times given in to depression and moodiness, yes, but his practice of tending to his fellows' growth was a wonderful antidote to those things which brought him down. Nathaniel was more so focused on the well being of his fellows so much so, that he allowed an opening for Father's divine energy to create for him a balanced life. His fellows' downcast attitudes were an invitation to him to find humor in the lighter side of serious topics.
My friends, I would ask that you continue in your warm and loving display here with one another to tend to each other's well being. Look for opportunities during the week to experiment with this technique. Recognize the opening and closing of the channel for the flow of divine energy. Be aware, your willingness to give is measured side by side with the capacity to receive.
