WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE UNITED TO ME?
Part 2 of 2 CS-50 26-Aug-97
Why is it that some people have reached the objective
without the means, while others, a great many of them
with so many means that they use, remain always aground?
For one reason alone
and it is that they do not want to give of themselves
but for a very smallest part, and thus, they frustrate My entire design
with respect to them.
One is not born a saint, but becomes one,
with steady efforts, efforts of the will, efforts of submission.
The things that are worthy of Me are not done
without giving Me the best of yourselves,
that is to say, the control of yourselves.
And so starting from an act worthy of My kindness,
I have arrived at the act of your will,
which by inserting itself into My act that moves you,
brings about the greatest of goods, My pleasure.
Do you see how much the creature united to Me can do?
It can give a joy, a pleasure to its God.
And does this seem something small to you?
Even knowing that you do not add anything
except in an accidental way,
you should nonetheless understand
that this is what it means to do acts worthy of My kindness.
This is to give God a Divine pleasure,
for that very reason, perfectly worthy of Me.
Therefore, let your work be a stimulus for you, not a habit;
let it be love, not gain.
Let your work be for you to give happiness about yourselves,
as if you had a real need to do it.
Sadly I do not explain these things for everybody
but it is good to also put your sight on the duties
relative to your schooling,
so that the elementary school student
and to a greater extent, the one in middle school,
may better understand the need to study more effectively each time
all that concerns him.
My children, be attentive as are so many students,
to the signals of their Teacher.
Learn from Him the divine science that He teaches you
with unparalleled love.
Learn today, because tomorrow you must understand it better.
And then you will remember this other lesson of Mine
that I have given for one whom you do not know,
but who is also a student in My divine school.
