Universal Reading from September 2022

1. How we see each other in looking out for one another.

In the LDS church, I had visiting teachers and home teachers for thirty years. They were to look in on each other and give support and a spiritual message and let the church leaders know if help was needed.

To assist as prompted is one thing.

To make assisting a lifestyle is not congruent with allowing one another to reach inside to find the Heavenly Father that we believe we have separated from.

It is an entirely different mentality than most of the societies on the earth have lived by.

2. Addiction

Everything can be addictive if it is used to distract one from asking the real questions of why we are here and what is our purpose.

3. You are of God, in God, worthy of all that God is, and it is okay to make mistakes.

This ties right in with the previous subject.

We have to be willing to allow the Holy Spirit to live our physical lives for us and trust the promise that Jesus gave us that those who are willing to give up this life for his purposes will give us the Eternal Life that is our true birthright.

4. You are not separate from Jesus or anyone or anything else. If you bash them you bash you, lift them you lift yourself.

This ties in closely with where my heart was as I felt that visiting teaching and home teaching were desirable and the Will of God.

Knowing that God is is what makes all of the difference. That, and knowing that you are His Son, and not the confusion of the imagery that Christ has manifested out of His fear that He had separated from Father.

What about the “relationships” that we appear to have in our stories, you might ask.
