An Essay On A Good & Faithful Life
By Bob Moyers - March 29, 2012
Once upon a time there was a man who believed that all men and women were created equal.
The man also believed that all men and women were created in the image of God and they were given the ability to be positive, to be honest, to communicate effectively, to love, to encourage, to forgive, and to be humble and admit shortcomings.
The man also believed that all men and women were called to have faith in God and to do the will of God.
One day the man made a decision to trust God and promised God he would do his will no matter what for the rest of his life.
One day he heard “help others.” So he decided to offer to help others be the best that they could be.
Another day he heard “you are called to be a prophet”. So he accepted the responsibility to be a messenger sent from God to help others learn how to live to love one another as God loves us.
Another day he heard “heal my sheep.” So he accepted the assignment to help others find balance and harmony in the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual energies and show them how to live healthy, happy, stress-free lives.
Another day he heard “write a book.” So he wrote a book: “Power Of Peaceful Thinking -- How To Know Jesus Christ As Savior, Lord, Master, Friend, And King.”
Another day he heard “become a great speaker.” So he joined Toastmasters and became a professional speaker. He became known as “Mr. Happy” and developed programs to help people in communications, leadership, health care, stress elimination, and spirituality.
Another day he heard “write a message for God’s people.” So he wrote the “Be Healthy Plan For God‘s People” and asked people to read the plan and distribute copies of the plan to as many people as possible and in as many ways as possible.
Another day he heard “unresolved anger and the lack of forgiveness are the root causes of keeping men and women from faith in God and doing the will of God each day.” So he established the Positive People Partners and the Center Of Unconditional Love and created National Forgiveness Day on the last Saturday of October.
Another day he heard “be Jesus to everyone and see Jesus in everyone.” So he decided to study the life and teachings of Jesus in greater detail so he could carry out his new assignment. Another day he heard “teach people how to be Jesus and how to see Jesus.” So he asked people to let him teach.
Another day he heard “of all human knowledge, that which is of greatest value is to know the religious life of Jesus and how he lived it.” So he went searching for more information about the life and teachings of Jesus.
Another day he heard “find more information about the life and teachings of Jesus.
Another day he heard “promise to love, listen, encourage, forgive, tell the truth, have a joyful day, be humble, admit shortcomings, ask good questions, give good answers, and control the words that come our of your mouth.” And so he made a New Year’s Resolution to do those things and to ask others to join him in doing those things and to encourage others to do those things in 2013.
Another day he head “when you know what I do and you do it, you will be my friend.” And so he continues to want to know Jesus as his best friend while encouraging others to make Jesus their best friend.
