"Jesus turned and said to Peter, 'Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling
block to me; for you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human
things. 'Then Jesus told his disciples, 'If any want to become my followers,
let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.  For those
who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for
my sake will find it.'"  ~Matthew 16:23-25

We were born with the Divine within us.  Living a selfish life can hinder
the Divine from being expressed and shared.  The celestial fire has to be
tended and fed so that it will grow into a real desire to live the right
way.  By trying to do the will of God, we grow more and more in the new way
of life.  By thinking of God, praying to God and having communion with God,
we gradually grow more like God.  The way of our transformation from the
material to the spiritual allows God to work in and through us.

I pray that I may tend the spark of the Divine within me so that it will
grow.  I pray that I may be gradually transformed from the old life to the
new and fuller life.

good day!
