“…be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” (I Timothy 4:12)
It is our duty and privilege to be an example to others of what we believe. We can and must live what we love, that which gives us peace and joy, which inspires and uplifts. We must consciously and conscientiously recognize the gift of knowing God and His active Science, that great law of infinite Love, and act in a way that invites and encourages others to know as well.
Let’s be careful of what we say and how we say it. This does not mean that we measure every word with too much judgment and concern, but that with our hearts full of God and His presence, we can speak from Truth, with an honesty and love that is healing and right and relevant, and which sufficiently honors God. We are His representatives, and we must glow forth with the beauty of His creation and the authority and goodness of His Word, which is Truth.
It may seem easier to commiserate with others’ gripes, to live within our own little worlds selfishly and in search of physical comfort and pleasure. It may seem easier to ignore the world’s woes than to actively work and pray for their removal from consciousness. It may seem more comfortable or familiar to join in the negative conversation, than to uplift it with our higher thought or with the light of love or insight or humor. But, the rewards of being loyal to what we love are great. Not only will we unveil God’s radiance for all, we will naturally bask in it ourselves!
