The Missing Dimension in Knowledge?
A former Educator MR. H. W. ARMSTRONG
HIS WISE INSIGHT INTO MANY OF TODAYS PROBLEMS.
There exist, overall, TWO BASIC WAYS of life -- two divergent philosopies. They travel in opposit directions. I state them very simply: ONE IS THE WAY OF GIVE -- THE OTHER OF GET.
More specifically, the one is the way of humility, and outgoing concern for others equal to self- concern. It is the way of cooperation, serving, helping, sharing; of consideration, patience and kindness. MORE IMPORTANT, it is also the way of obedience to, reliance on, and worship solely toward GOD. IT IS THE GOD-CENTERED WAY, OF LOVE TOWARD GOD AND LOVE TOWARD NEIGHBORER.
The opposite is the SELF-CENTERED way of vanity, lust and greed; of competition and strife; jealousy, and unconcerned for the welefare of others.
FEW REALIZE THIS VITAL FACT: The "GIVE" way is actually an invisible, yet inexorible, SPIRITUAL LAW IN MOTION. IT IS SUMMARIZED IN PRINCIPLE, BY THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.
There is a cause for every effect.
Proverbs 13:20. HE THAT WALKS WITH WISE MEN SHALL BE WISE: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. Matthew 3:34 -- 39. WHEREFORE I SEND UNTO YOU PROPHETS, and WISE MEN, and SCRIBES: some of them you shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall you scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city.
