Thoughts about 27. May

No one can help another if he doesn't understand him.

In order to understand the difficulties and temptations of my fellow human being, I have to go through them myself. I have to do everything possible to learn to understand my neighbor. I inquire about his origins, his likes and dislikes, his reactions and prejudices. If I recognize weaknesses in him, I will not hold them against him. Instead, I admit my own weaknesses, sins and temptations and let him come to a judgment about myself.

Thoughts about 15. December

The more you can switch off your self, the more successfully GOD can work through you.

So that you do not hinder God's work, do not try to stand in his way through unauthorized action. GOD expects you to serve him obediently and hold on to the ideals of the new life you are striving for. If you are faithful to GOD he will save you from errors. He will plan for you and will have enough inner strength for you. If you just don't take yourself so seriously and leave yourself to God's work, you will be sure of victory and success.
