Active Sympathy

I was reading the late Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s book of daily devotions this morning and these two lines really made an impression on me: 

“…but if we want to be Christian, this means that we should share in the broad heart of Christ–in responsible action that freely seizes the hour, that puts us in danger and in genuine sympathy that flows not from anxiety but from the liberating and redeeming love of Christ for all who suffer. Inactive waiting and apathetic watching are not Christian attitudes.”

  3. So by putting ourselves in the vibration, tuning into the radio station of money if you will, we’ll be able to attract it.
    The law of vibration is a powerful part of
    the law of attraction. Think about it, you’re just slowing down the process.
