We are in an age of great change … corporations are streamlining their workforces … industries are either being eliminated or are moving into new fields. … Jobs once considered to be secure are being eliminated. Many workers are being faced with … retraining for new fields of work [or] … launching out in entrepreneurial endeavors, calling for faith and vision and the need to tap into the universal flow of substance.
Your life can be positively transformed! Today can be the day in which God's plan for your life begins expressing itself in ways greater than anything you can imagine. You can become more fully aware of the incredible kingdom of God within and around you.
Jesus said, “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (Jn. 10:10). To accept Jesus’ invitation to a fuller life, we must be willing to move beyond a routine, fearful, or limited existence and live the dynamic, abundant life. We live the abundant life by daring to discover more of our spiritual identity and potential.
I open myself to the Divine flow of goodness, ideas, and substance.
God is my unfailing source.
I anticipate God's good.
I am grateful for a full and prosperous life.
I am an open channel through which prosperity flows.
I first heard of Eric Butterworth back in 1955. At that time I was a performer based in San Francisco, and my voice teacher happened to be a lay minister at the local Unity Church. He took me to his church the first time and I never left. …
What I found to be so compelling in Butterworth’s teachings, and still do, is that the power of God, the essential spirit, is within each of us. We can ignore that, or we can draw upon it and decide to grow. We can heal ourselves—or at least heal ourselves enough to know that we may need the help of a professional. And it’s just a marvelous way of looking at the world. …
Spiritual gifts—everyone has them. Have you ever thought about the gifts within you? Do you know what they are? The apostle Paul talked about very specific gifts:
“Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed … There are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit … To one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith … to another gifts of healing … to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the discernment of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues” (1 Cor. 12:1,4,8-10).
Truth is ready at all times to give judgment and justice. As God is love, so God is justice. These qualities are in Divine Mind in unity, but are made manifest in man's consciousness too often in diversity. It is through the Christ Mind in the heart that they are unified. When justice and love meet at the heart center, there are balance, poise, and righteousness. When judgment is divorced from love, and works from the head alone, there goes forth the human cry for justice. In his mere human judgment, man is hard and heartless; he deals out punishment without consideration of motive or cause, and justice goes awry.
