A fight with the weapon of love is always promising, and truly he is the stronger, who serves in humility, for he reaches his aim quicker, because he is always given richly favour and power - which the fighter certainly also must request, otherwise he loses in the fight against himself.

Fighting or serving.

24. March 1954. B.D. NR. 5913.

Do not forget, that you must fight or serve. But the fight is not to be a fight against your fellowmen, against the weak and defenceless, also not, that one marches against the other, to overcome him, for the sake of earthly success. It is to be a fight against you yourselves, against faults and bad habits, vices and desires. This fight is not easy and needs all your powers; but so you become victor in this fight, it is for you a marvellous gain. But you can also choose another way, to win this gain - the way of serving neighbourly love. As soon as you serve, you also conquer yourselves, for you voluntarily change your nature. The power you need, to give up all faults and bad habits, you now acquire through your love work, and you receive a rich measure of favour - so you serve in love. For you have now as the first thing overcome arrogance, you have become humble and can now receive favour unlimitedly. You no longer need to wage war against yourselves, as soon as you serve in love. Serving in love is just another form of the fight against yourself, but with the same success, to gain victory over all ignoble, over all desires, over love lessness. Through fighting or serving the change of nature in man is carried out, but far easier is the serving than the fighting, and who is always a serving brother to his fellowmen, he finds far less resistance than the man, who makes the systematic self-conquest as aim, for he is not shown the patience and love from the side of fellowmen, which the former acquires through his behaviour against fellowmen. For that reason, it also says: Fighting or serving - because severe inner fights could have been spared the one serving, which the other often has to pass. A fight with the weapon of love is always promising, and truly he is the stronger, who serves in humility, for he reaches his aim quicker, because he is always given richly favour and power- which the fighter certainly also must request, otherwise he loses in the fight against himself. It is also supplied to him by God upon his prayer, so that he can succeed with his change of nature, but is only then achieved, when also he serves in love, when his self-love, after hard fighting, has become unselfish neighbourly love - when also he now receives power and favour through work in love.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5913.
