October 6 – Power-Seekers
How pitiful man’s striving after power when God’s Power, with all its mighty possibilities, is there for him did he but know how to obtain it.
To tell one such that this would only be possible for one who has entered My Kingdom of Heaven, might indeed arouse his curiosity.
But tell him the way into that Kingdom is one of self-effacement, obedience to and love of My Will, tell him that he must enter as a little child, that only by spiritual progress can he attain to a man’s true estate, and that the training might be long, the discipline hard — tell him this and he will turn empty away.
Yet in so doing he will renounce, all unknowing the victor’s prize, the life of peace, and power, and joy.
