Our Maker gave us two hands; one to hold to Him, the other to our fellow man. If our hands are full of, or struggling for, possessions, we can hold to neither God nor humanity. If, however, we hold fast to Him who gave us life, who is our ever-present Partner, His loving spirit will flow through us and out to our neighbor. That is the way to joy, love, achievement and inner peace.
Surely, if we love our children, we will teach them the simple truth of their own partnership with God. Therein lies their only real chance for a happy, fruitful life.
