June 27 – No Self-Reproach
The Eternal Arms shelter you. “Underneath are the Everlasting Arms.” This promise is to those who rise above the earth-life and seek to soar higher, to the Kingdom of Heaven.
You must not feel the burden of your failure. Go on in faith, the clouds will clear, and the way will lighten – the path becomes less stony with every step you take. So run that you may obtain. A rigid doing of the simple duties, and success will crown your efforts.
I had no words of reproach for any I healed. The man was whole and free who had wrecked his physical being by sin – whose palsy I healed.

The woman taken in adultery was told “Neither do I condemn thee: go and sin no more.” She was not told to bear the burden of the consciousness of her sin …
Remember now abideth these three, Faith, Hope, and Charity. Faith is your attitude towards Me. Charity your attitude towards your fellow man, but as necessary, is Hope, which is confidence in yourself to succeed.
There is therefore now no condemnation
to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk
not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
