A New Gift Every Day
By Mary Rowe
Do you sometimes feel that you receive to many gifts from God that there is no way in which you can give adequate thanks---or return? Remember that there is always a giving and receiving; the flow is never one way.
Every day you give a new gift to God---because every day the self you offer in service is a new self. Day by day you change, because day by day you put forth a little more effort in the pursuit of Truth. Day by day you grow, because day by day you stretch a little higher in conciousness in your efforts to reach new understanding. Day by day you love a little more; forgive a little more; and day by day new depths of compassion and wisdom are discovered and used.
To set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. ---- Romans 8:6
