Daily Readings from the Works of H. T. Hamblin
|The 2nd quarter||Let us bless the Lord, who is our life and our health, and without Whom we have no life or being at all.|
Jesus said: “I am the way; and the way that He indicated was one of harmony and peace, entirely different from the fretful fever of life, or the careworn existence, which most people lead.
|Reading from three days ago|
|If we keep turning to the Lord and surrendering to Divine Love, then sin dies away, and its power over us is destroyed. The worst thing we can do is to cling to our sin, and at the same time invoke the Power of the Infinite. If we do this we destroy ourselves. Sin is not, however, merely doing wicked things; it is doing anything against Divine Love; it is acting contrary to Love’s behests; it is refraining from doing, or neglecting to do, the good we know that we ought to do.|
What we need to aim for is not a negative state of mere absence of sin, but a fuller life, a God-filled life which casts out all weaknesses or sins. Sin, after all, is a falling short from the Divine Perfection, and this can be remedied not by fighting the weakness of falling away, but by turning to the Divine Perfection, so that we can grow into Its likeness.
