We are all unique Creations of God
Family, Penny and I used to begin our talks with what we called an ice breaker. It was meant to warm up the audience, and begin our talk on a very important subject. This is the way it worked.
One of us would say: “All right. I want everyone to look at the person on your right. (Laughter)
Okay, now I want everyone to look at the person on your left.
Now, just look. No kissing. (At this point Penny would kiss me.)
Okay one kiss but that’s it. (Lots of laughter)”
And then the talk would begin. “Did you know that that person on your left and on your right is a unique, one-of-a-kind creation of God?”
That’s right family. You are a one-of-a-kind creation of God.
When God created you, yes you, He molded you into exactly who He wanted you to be. He put it all into your DNA and your spirit, so that when you grew up, you would be the person we see today. When He was finished creating you, He sat back, sighed, and said “It is perfect.” You are perfect.
So if anyone tells you you’re too tall, too short, too fat, too skinny, have too many freckles, not enough freckles, don’t believe them.
You are exactly what God wanted.
So now the question is, how do I handle this special creation that God made?
Handle with Care. You are precious cargo.
Treat your body as a temple of the Holy Spirit. Don’t abuse it. Don’t put anything into it that could harm it like drugs or alcohol. These will harm your brain, your ability to think, and make decisions.
Overeating or not eating enough is dangerous for the body as is tobacco. God gave you beautiful functioning tools; heart, liver, kidneys, lungs. It takes a lot to keep them healthy. It doesn’t take much to destroy them.
God gave you this beautiful soul. This will be with you for Eternity.
Protect your soul. Don’t let outside influences corrupt your soul.
It’s simple but not easy to protect your soul. God gave you will power. That will help in keeping the bad guys out and the good things in.
St. John Vianney, the Cure of Ars, always talked about two Angels, the bad one and the good one. The bad one whispers into your left ear, trying to get you to do things that would harm your soul. The Good Angel whispers in your right ear, trying to get you to do things that would not harm your soul.
And that’s where Free Will kicks in. God has included in your package the freedom to do whatever you want, good or bad. He’s not forcing you in either direction. But you know which way He wants you to go. So do we.
We love you!
