Our Thoughts . . .

When we nurture evil thoughts, we become evil. We may think that we are good, but evil is in us. We do not have the strength to resist it. And we know that, as Christians, we must not even think evil, let alone do it. We, however, have Divine power, Divine life, and Divine energy. On the day of the Final Judgment we shall have to give an answer for the way we have used the Divine power, life, and energy which have been given to us; whether we have contributed to the harmony in the universe, or have sown disharmony.
