The Blessed Day and the Blessed Life
If people resolve in the morning: “Today I shall not offend or quarrel with anyone; today I want to be honest in all my actions”, such a day will be a blessed day. When they make a true effort to overcome and avoid all evil, and persevere in doing so, their life will be blessed.
Jesus’ Parable of the Lost
All of Christ’s thinking and actions were concentrated on the mission given to him by the Father. He always carried in his consciousness the memory of the former events of the fall and of his many conversations with the Father concerning the repatriation of the fallen spirits. However, as a human being, he could only speak about these events by way of parables because the disciples and his listeners would never have been able to grasp the entire truth.
