If you are not helping
others, you are asleep in
selfishness and how dwells the love of the Creator in you?.1John
3:17 "But whoso has this world's good and sees his brother.(who
is 'my brother'?).have
need and shuts up his bowels of compassion from him.(would
rather buy a cool muffler for his car than help children through their
families who are lacking what is needed to avoid having the hard times
they may be going through), how dwells
the love of God in him?" Isaiah 56:10.
Woodrow Wilson found this
out in the politics of his day and has some good
wisdom on it. Compassion allows us to
reach out to others, providing hope for them in their darker periods
You just can't have confidence
in the majority of people to help others, as they are selfishly concerned
for themselves and their temporary presence in this world:.Proverbs
25:19; Jeremiah 22:13.
Christ came here to show
20:25-28; 23:11; 18:23-35;
The Great Infinite One is
full of compassion, but He's left the Earth alone to see what we would
If those who
are of God really were of the Father, they would love, care for, pray
for and meditate on the concerns of others and have compassion toward others:.Matthew
25:42-45 "For I was an hungred and you.(many

'food'). I was thirsty and you gave
me no drink. I was a stranger and you took me not in, naked and you clothed
me not, sick and in prison and you visited me not. Then they answered him
saying, Lord when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked
or sick or in prison and did not minister unto you? Then shall he answer
them saying Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as you did it not to one of
the least of these.(verse
40 explains 'these' as 'my brethren'),
you did it not to me." Mark 3:35 "For
whosoever does the will of God,.the
same is my brother.and
my sister and mother.(in
other words, if you do these things, you're in Christ as close as it's
possible to be)." John

you would love me.(if
God was their attention they would be in the higher consciousness of love)..."
3:16 "For God so loved the world...".Romans
8:29 says He was the firstborn among many brethren. We are called brethren.
our brother. We are in God's family. Romans
Those who aspire
to true, that is, loving spirituality, are brothers
23:8. They would live life not as a namby-pamby,
but as one dedicated to higher
principles. A true executive is one who does his best in bringing others
to his level so the unit will be increasingly effective in the purpose
they are together on Earth for at this time.
You find some people like
this in companies today and in families. They are teaching their
children to reach high in quality of character. Their works are good.
But then, we have others being the dumb
ass types who need to be reached
Many people are apathetic
towards anything but selfish concerns.
They want to be number one. They want to be in charge. Some even envy
those in front of them in life. This is not the way of a servant unto others.(Luke
22:26), but for many not knowing
the overall purpose of life, it seems like it's the right way to

had a pent up.streak
of anger in him and as such was
angry and misrepresented
his Creator by implying
to the ancient Israelites
that there was displeasure with them, making them think that Moses and
surely the Creator too,
as Moses was Creator's direct man then, were angry and displeased at them.
In this way, Moses disparaged
God to the people.
Although God was angry
with them, Moses should have pointed out to them, why, because the
people were just following what seemed the best way for them:.Proverbs
Instead Moses vented
his anger. This
to turn the people further from God by showing them that he too was displeased
with them. Moses had a history of acting on his anger, such as when
he killed an Egyptian, such as when he threw and broke the tablets
God wrote instructions on that he was to tell the people about.(Exodus
such as when he struck a rock in anger:.Numbers
Even though there was good
reason to be angry.(Deuteronomy
9:7,8), it should not be expressed
As a result of Moses' anger he was restricted from entering the promised
land. He was not allowed to lead them in the new
of living awaiting:.Numbers
20:1-12; Deuteronomy 3:23-27.
Moses was fed
up with the constantly complaining Israelites. Moses had been told
by God to speak unto the rock, but he was angry and took his rod and smacked
it twice. This attitude kept Moses out of the promised land. He has this
history of anger that he just couldn't seem to master, by deciding to not
be like that and have some awareness of how he was as he lived his life.
Earlier, meek Moses showed
his meekness by a lack of confidence. He just didn't want to do what Creator
wanted him to do as he was looking at his inability and not at the Creator's
ability to help him. At this time he also knew the Creator, but Moses lacked
confidence in Creator-God, so much so that he tried to talk Creator out
of what He wanted Moses to do. Creator got angry at this, but gave Moses
a work around for his lack of confidence:.Exodus
we must not now misrepresent our Creator by being overly self-concerned
about what we fear others may think of us if we do this and that.

Moses here had disregard

to observe how selfishness
governs all ranks, how any excuses men will make to avoid trouble or expense
in relieving others. And then there are others who dispicably use others
But the true spiritual
person of God, called a 'Christian'
in the Bible, has the law of love written in his heart.
This is what converts his character from
selfishness to caring and doing the best he can for others. The Spirit
of Christ then wells
in him. The parable is a beautiful explanation of the law of loving
our neighbour as ourselves, without regard to nation, party, or any other
distinction." We need to 'see
the face of God' in all men and women.
More than anything else,
it is by showing care for fellow Christians.(what
really is a Christian?).and
for others in the world, or not yet called.(1Corinthians
12:25), that Christians reach out
with the message of love:.John
17:23. In this we are truly
light of the world,
salt of the Earth.(Matthew
grow in favor of God and people.(Luke
2:25), bringing forth fruit of
Vine to which we are attached.
If we are to love
and pray for our enemies and those who use or abuse us.(Matthew
5:44,45; Luke 6:27; Romans
12:20), how much more then those
who aren't our enemies?.Galatians
6:10. Regarding our enemies: the original Greek word in Matthew 5:44
for 'pray' means 'to be all for wanting another's best'. This is why the
one we call Emmanuel tells us to forgive
others 70x7 or unlimitedly.
But living from the low consciousness
ego level we have mostly all been brought up
in, makes it near impossible for us to even grasp
apart from perhaps a glimmer
13:12. It takes a level
of high consciousness to comprehend
to the point of belief. The level of belief is where action comes from,
and from action, change.
Many hold a priority ensuring
that they are always ok, in that their retirement
options are secure, their homes are continually enhanced, even beyond
reasonable necessity, their vehicles renewed with unbalanced frequency,
social life isn't hindered and so on and so forth.
This is good
as long as one is concerned also for the underprivileged majority of mankind,
wanting them also to experience the same, and one is doing a part in making
it possible for them. Otherwise it is simply selfishness:.Acts
is simply selfishness based on the belief that there is not enough for
everyone, so I will keep mine close to me so they do not get it. Believing
in this will cause negativity to come along. There is always more than
enough for every person on Earth.
Our job is
to show them how to use the laws of the universe
that prospered us. Some need water, food, medical supplies, and education
so their minds can even comprehend the knowledge that would free them from
the negativity that has for so long held them in bondage:.Romans
8:2 "For the law of the Spirit of life.(the
universal laws that can bring us all we want).in
Christ Emmanuel has made me free from the law of sin.(missing
the mark of getting all we want).and
direction that leads toward death)."
This is the law we all have
been subject to; that of the negative mass mind influence:.James
"Natural greatness is in
innocence and simplicity."....Deepak
Many fail in understanding
a simple life. They may unnecessarily.complicate
their lives because of an inability to discern
difference between needs and wants:.Proverbs
19:23. Minds can get clouded by excessive
desires, lack of understanding as to why
they are on Earth in the first place, and most strongly of all, the
dark side influenced mass mind
negativity like there's no tomorrow.
Many are not content and
thankful for what they have and where they are in life:.1Timothy
6:8; Ecclesiastes 9:9.
One needs to be content enough so that he can pursure the spiritual things
of the heart and mind.
Once this is decided upon,
all else is looked after.(Matthew
you can continue growing spiritually.
Einstein those still steeped in the ego level of existence desire to
more and more, even engaging in legal
but immoral manipulations to ensure continued ingratiation.
They are addicted to the prosperity of fools where money is power: Proverbs
They have succumbed
to the selfishness demon, the more so the higher up the corporate ladder
they may be positioned, where climbing supersedes
giving. They learn the vain
values of temporal
existence, imprisioning themselves
within a mental vein,
keeping them unable to selflessly give to help others. They have been sucked
into the system:.2Peter

side tricks are beyond counteraction
by even the highly educated.
This gives testimony to the
fact that without spiritual principles.(honesty,
integrity, kindness, generosity, wisdom, etc.).being
taught in our educational system the system cranks out more deceitful crooks.
Individuals without this
proper education fail to see why they are here.
They waste time on excessive material concerns; time that could have well
been spent on that which will last forever:.Matthew
15:13-19; 6:19-21. They are
