Hallelujah! I bid you the love of the eternal God and the peace of the Holy Son.
When you find or gain something for free it makes you feel really great.
Actually, hardly anything is free.
Think about how much you gained for free in the past.
Almost nothing, right?
So, if you are just hoping for handouts, you won't get anything.
Therefore, instead of hoping for free stuff,
you should take action on a condition-reward basis.
Through hard work you can create, take action, and so gain more than you expect.
Then you will have more joy than the joy you would have from gaining things for free.
When you answer test questions too, your joy and satisfaction will be greater when you get the right answer through your own hard work rather than gaining marks by randomly selecting answers, hoping to get giveaways.
It is the same way in all things and in the world of faith.
Therefore, we should take action enthusiastically this year too.
It's best to take action fervently within God's Will.
God surely grants according to our actions within His Will!
Whether on the street or at the market, things are not simply given for free.
You have to buy something by paying for it with money.
Then because you bought something, those who sold it to you may throw in a freebie.
In the same way, we must take action.
Then upon that condition, God gives you giveaways and throws in freebies on top of your actions
and He makes you feel the thrill as if you've won the jackpot.
It is hard to get something for free when you have done nothing and have set no condition at all.
The right way is to take action and receive giveaways based on your actions.
That is why the answer is to run hard. Taking action is the answer.
The key point of today's Word is: 'Those who take action on their own will gain, so it is not hard!'
Therefore, I bless you to take action on your own,
but let God, the Holy Spirit, the Holy Son and the Lord go before you as your head.
