Do as you are told
and you will be justly rewarded
Drop the dead wood.
We’ve got it wrong. That’s not the point, Christ says. It never was about bearing the weight of the cross not for Him, not for us. We are to drop the dead weight of the cross and rise up. The priest told us again last Sunday that we all have our own crosses to bear. He was asking us, telling us, to think of them, to bear their weight. But if we keep tied to the heaviness of our physical weights we will remain planted in this physical plane. Our spirits cannot soar when we have both feet so deeply planted in the ground.
Grasp a new idea
The idea of the Peace of Heaven.
Yes, we here on earth can have the Peace of Heaven, Heaven on earth, Heaven above earth. But each time we concentrate on our physical woes, they become mental and then spiritual woes, dragging us down. Did we ever hear Jesus complain? He might have commented, but he didn’t complain. He kept his thoughts high. He lived in continual communion with “His Father,” as we are to do as well. Some call this “The Golden Key,” the key to all the treasures of Heaven. Whenever you find your thoughts low, tied to trouble, raise them by thinking of God, the Glory of God. Thank God again and again.
