Favour.

20. August 1950. B.D. NR. 4953.

Who has experienced the favour of God by himself, he is to also take care that others get into its possession, and this is already a sign that it has become effective at him. Therefore man is to help his fellowmen, as also he was helped in spiritual as also in earthly trouble. Help in earthly trouble is a work of unselfish neighbourly love and at the same time a sure means, to secure for himself a treasure of favour, and man then uses these again as help in spiritual trouble. God gives his favour to the humble. The humble man serves fellowman, and therefore serving neighbourly love is always the way, which leads to the inexhaustible spring of favour of God. Godís favour is the expression of his love and mercy; it is a gift, which is to raise up to him the weak fallen; it is further a means, to resist in temptations of all kind; it is the donator of power emerging out of divine mercy, which is undeservedly at the disposal of man, out of which he can take and use according to his own will. Man willing to love receives favour in excess, which he acquires through his love activity. But it also flows to the man lacking love; it only mostly remains ineffective, because he pays no attention to it. Therefore man can accept or reject a gift, which is offered to him; but he can also acquire a treasure for himself, therefore increase that thousand times through his own will, what is sent to him as gift, i.e. through serving neighbourly love. Favour is everything, what God sends to man, so that he is happy. All means to be happy are means of favour, because it is an act of favour of immeasurable importance, so God helps the one having deserted him to the top, which it could never ascend out of own power. The infinite love and mercy of God helps the fallen to power, but does not force itself on it, but lets it depend on his will to accept or to reject. Therefore everything is favour, which promotes the ascent development of the spiritual, only that favour cannot be rejected in the stages before, while the spiritual, which is embodied as man, is free to use it or to leave it unnoticed. And from it follows that every man can be happy, when he wants it Ė because every one can also use the favour, so he wants it, and no-one will come away empty-handed, as long as he stays as man on earth. But no compulsion is imposed on his will, otherwise the favour of God would have an effect with everyone, but this would be no free ascent development and consequently a spiritual perfection impossible, but which is last aim of all that, what has become imperfect in free will and for that reason is also unhappy so long, as it does not use the favour of God. Amen. B.D. NR. 4953.
