"LOOK AT THE FOLLOWING REALISTICALLY. ASK YOURSELF: IS THIS ME?"

SEPTEMBER 23, 1983

“LOOK AT THE FOLLOWING REALISTICALLY.
ASK YOURSELF:  IS THIS ME?

I don’t need to be reminded of things to do regarding my Faith.  I believe in God and I have practiced my Faith in the way I know how.  I feel that I am doing my best.  I feel I live by the Ten Commandments.  I feel I go to church as often as I can.  I feel that my life is clean, and I also feel that even if I wanted to improve my life I would still have to live up to what other people do in my time of life.  I don’t consider myself bad.  Granted, I am not perfect, but I do consider myself normal, which is more than I can say about some very righteous people who go to church all the time.

LOOK AT THESE STATEMENTS REALISTICALLY.


NOW ASK YOURSELF THESE QUESTIONS:

What do you base your life on, your practical scope of things?  Possibly it is the best you can do, but is it all you can do?  Have you limited yourself in areas where only you control the fashion of how you project your beliefs in God?  Do you extend yourself beyond your self-satisfied mood of spirituality?  Do you honestly recognize the Value of your Spiritual growth, the unlimitedness vantage and advantage God has allowed you, or do you limit your own Spiritual progress through laziness, self-induced lethargy, or a feeling that to love God more, serve Him better, grows stronger in loving Him in obedience to His Rules and Mandates?

Do you accept less when you could have more?  Do you truly recognize the Power He Is, the Strength He Is, His Supremacy in all things?  Are you satisfied with poverty, Spiritual poverty, only because you neglect working for a higher place in Heaven?  Do you say to yourself, ‘I guess I just don’t have the Faith or the drive or the desire’?  Do you say, ‘God understands me’?  Do you accept this trite statement?  If you do you are speaking for God.  Do you have this right?  Is this not an immature, lackadaisical cop-out to accepting the responsibility of seeing Faith in God as the ultimate life support of living, for living, in living?”
