to talk to God about sickness and misery and poverty is just
foolishness. It is like trying to convince God of a lie. You
can ignore all these things and simply seek God, in Whom you will find
the Truth which is always good."
- Dr. Ernest Holmes, Pray and Prosper
let it be said of money that it is good or bad ... for to say such
things is nonsense ... it is neither, only thinking makes it so.
In scripture we are cautioned not to seek money but to seek God ... and
the reasoning is perfect ... God is more abundant than any amount of
money we can imagine.
Millions of people buy
Lottery tickets thinking that money is going to buy them all that they
want ... and this will make them happy ... until, of course, they
realize that money cannot buy you peace, love, health and confidence ...
it can only buy you things. And the truth is, money can also
diminish our peace, love, health, confidence and happiness ... for many
people who receive great amounts of money live in fear that they will
lose it or that the people around them are there only because of their
money. People can be very clever when it comes to money and God
... most feel very uncomfortable with praying for money. Now, I am
not referring to people who are struggling with debts or financial
challenges ... their desire for money is of a totally different nature
... it is not so much money that they are seeking, but a solution.
"Thine own is seeking after
thee, therefore cease thou from seeking after it" ... this great
statement of Truth applies to money just as much as it does to any other
thing. Money has only the power that we give it ... and our
seeking after it instills within us a feeling of lack ... and this
feeling of lack is the power that keeps us in lack ... it is just that
"Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all
things shall be added unto you" ... this is Principle and it works
precisely for everyone who remains steadfast to It. The kingdom of
God is the kingdom of Good ... and "the kingdom of heaven is within
you" ... happiness, joy, peace, harmony, love and confidence ...
seek to "be" in tune with these things and all things shall be
added unto you. It is this seeking the Good that attracts people
and opportunities to us. When we are happy we can think more
clearly ... when we are at peace with our life, we make decisions with
clarity rather than from fear or worry ... it is the seeking to embody
these things that opens our mind to ideas that prosper us so that we may
gain greater confidence as we see the evidence of things in our
experience. But ... for many of us ... we must temporarily look
through appearances that seem to be against us ... we must move through
debt and unemployment ... and for some of us, strong feelings of
helplessness and powerlessness. But ... look through them and move
through them we must ... else we may find ourselves walking through the
valley of death ... filled with self-pity. And I do not mean a
physical death ... but a death to hope, trust and faith ... within
ourselves ... and for many of us, this can become a long-term
Am I teaching a Pollyanna
philosophy when I state that we are to look through the appearances of
the conditions and circumstances in our lives to that which is beyond
only in faith? Absolutely not! Why? Because millions
of people have practiced this same method ... the practice of the Love
of God, or the Good ... rather than the love of money ... and have been
prospered more abundantly than they ever could have imagined possible.
And what one man/woman can do ... every man and woman can do ... and
that is the Truth.
So It Is!
