The more you give, the more you receive.
December 11, 2022
God's presence is magnified by your presence. For God's power to be felt throughout the world, it is necessary for God’s presence to be reflected by many. And so through that reflection, each person grows.
Your spiritual growth, therefore, depends not just on your being open to God's light and the love which comes forth. Your growth is dependent upon the reflection of others upon your life. There is an interdependence here that is most important. You grow through your communion with others and not just through your communion with God. The more your interactions express your perception and understanding of God, the more they are radiated outward, and thereby reflected back to you. Your growth is enhanced by that reflection. In a sense, the more you give, the more is reflected back upon you and the greater and more profound your growth. The influence that you have on others has a direct influence therefore on your own growth.
