As I ponder this title, once again I am reminded that now is all there is! My husband just walked in to tell me that he just read “We are thought to be witnesses, not prosecuting attorneys.” I really like that for I am tempted to not only judge another, but myself as well. Comparisons follow that line of thinking and lead either to feelings of pride or inferiority and sometimes, both. Right at that time, I choose to correct that thinking and replace it with Love for myself and then, I can Love others as well.
Proverbs 3: 11-12 states “My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline and do not resent His rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those He loves, as a father the son he delights in.” By releasing all human outlining, I can see only spiritual growth going on and that is seeing through God’s eyes. Today, I choose to be alert and catch early on, any erroneous thinking and stay in the Now!
“Being” says to me that we are already complete and should always work out from Spiritual perfection. That’s where humility and gratitude are important because with that mind set, Truth can be readily attained and understood. “Becoming” always denotes a future time, here later or hereafter. That to me seems like an unreachable goal. There can be no imperfection in perfection and when we start with that concept, we can also realize there is never a limitation of Good or God in omniscience, omnipresence and omnipotence which God is. My search is never without but within. Genesis 1:27 states “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Doesn’t that say spiritually perfect if we are created in His image?
The above seems to be in our face daily! When we read, study and pray with our Bible, every challenge is addressed and there is such guidance and direction. Galations 3:28 states, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” As we pray with this verse, we know this is speaking of our true spiritual being.
