While rejoicing about the rescue of the young boys from the cave in Thailand, I first thought of things said about the assistant coach being irresponsible in taking them inside the cave. Now, it has been revealed that the same young man had studied to be a monk and not only had he taught the boys how to meditate he had shared his food and water with them. How wonderful! Once again, I was reminded of how we should view others through God’s eyes, which is Love.
2 Corinthians 4:6-7 states ” For God, who said, Let light shine out of darkness, made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”
This morning as I was praying about the rescue of the boys’ soccer team and their assistant coach from the cave in Thailand, I had been reading the Holy Bible and “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” by Mary Baker Eddy asking for guidance on how to pray. Was immediately led to a citation in Science and Health, which stated “Material belief is slow to acknowledge what the spiritual fact implies. The Truth is the centre of all religion. It commands sure entrance into the realm of Love.” That seemed to be the answer for me as I thought of the dire predictions humanly but soon remembered that God was right there with those children in the cave.
Also, the prayers going out from people all over the world have to be comforting them and those who are seeking an entrance in order to save them. My prayer today surrounds those inside as well as outside those walls. Then, I realized I was praying for the entire universe.
Romans 8:38-39 states “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the Love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
