“He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.” (II Corinthians 3: 6, New International Version)
You are well-equipped to share your goodness with others. We have this competency to minister, to care willingly and humbly for others, in our own unique and powerful way. This readiness is part of the covenant, the holy agreement between each of us and God.
This contract recognizes our Oneness with Him, our union with the divine qualities, the Spirit that is Life and Love. And this Spirit in us, this knowing in our hearts, is what brings out our best towards others. This consciousness inspires and uplifts us and gives us the strength and confidence to shine our light.
If we let this Spirit, this unencumbered joy and love, get tangled up in language, intellectual ideas, rules and dogma, we strangle it. The letter of good intentions becomes bound up in the unreliability of human opinions. It loses the spiritual impulse that is truly good and right and healing.
Let’s do our best to let inspiration lead us. Let’s minister from our honest hearts with the very Love that is also ministering to us.
