Be love and peace in action

Love begins in the heart. It is nurtured in the home. Be an example of love to your children, to your family, to friends, and to the brothers and sisters who are around us everywhere; at work, when we shop, in our neighborhood.

See others through the eyes of love, not as strangers, but in recognizing a brotherhood. For we are all children of God. There is but one Divine Father and He loves us all.

Love doesn't judge and as loving children, neither should we. To be at peace first we must seek peace in our lives and our hearts. There cannot be a confrontation if one of your is at peace and refuses to retaliate in kind.

Peace is not only an attitude, it becomes a way of life. It is better to build bridges that help us work together than walls that keep us apart. Faith and love is what helps accomplish this.

Treat others with the respect you would wish for yourself and those that you love. Don't gloat over a talent God given but seek instead how you can use it for the most good.

Our purpose is to serve a higher good, to be of service, to learn and to teach. Realize that the Divine doesn't love just some of us and we are favored, but loves us all equally and some gifts are unseen.

There is a purpose to every person's life. It isn't necessary that we recognize it for God knows what it is. Do not worry for others, but endeavor to improve yourself.

Seek Divine wisdom before you act. Pray for yourself, for others, and for the work. Take time for quiet meditation that you may open your heart and your mind to the love of God and hear what He is saying to you in the still small voice within.

The difference is not what we say we're going to do, but in what we succeed in doing. Actions do speak louder than words.
