"I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High."
This idea changes everything. It shows us our potential, and it explains to us why God doesn't coddle us more. We aren't pets or playthings... we're true children with the potential to become like our father. As gods-in-training, life doesn't seem as overwhelming. I mean... we're gods. We can handle it. Things that seem scary or uncomfortable to us seem like tiny little hurdles if we have a true perspective of who we are. We can do anything. I was watching a show called Heroes the other day... people who have superpowers... can teleport, resist harm, fly, etc. ... and seriously, that is us. Maybe we haven't learned to do everything yet, or learned to use our powers wisely and for good all of the time... but we have the potential for them... for all the things that God can do. Which, I would say, is pretty much anything. So, today, let's remember who we are, and do what God asks, no matter how difficult. After all, he is the one who knows our potential better than we do... and who can teach us to be better than we are.
