"For I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to see what you see,
but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it."  ~Luke

Though it may seem a paradox, we can believe in spiritual forces which we
cannot see more than in material things which we can see, if we are going to
truly live.  Between one human being and another only spiritual forces can
suffice to keep them in harmony.  These spiritual forces we know, because we
can see their results although we cannot see them.  A changed life--a new
personality--results from the power of unseen spiritual forces working in us
and through us.

I pray that I may believe in the unseen.  I pray that I may be convinced by
the results of the unseen which I do see.
