A Tool to shed light over the qualities in our life 1 Inner feelings

Created in the image of God has every human being some elements or characteristics of the Elohim and has each individual the task to try to get all their characteristics in line with those of the Most High.

As fallible human beings it is not bad to have some tools at hand to help us to remember certain things we may not forget. Such handy tools may give us reminders or alerts or even shed light on our way we want to try to work things out.

The Most High Elohim has given mankind enough time to work out how it can restore the relationship with God and His creatures. To help us the Divine Creator, Who created us in His image, did not only provide an inner feeling or instinct (the natural tendency to behave or react in a particular way) in us, so that we could know or feel which way to go or what to choose for. Since the first man and mannin ate from the fruit of the Tree of knowledge of good and evil, man has no excuse for so called not knowing what is just or right or what is wrong or amiss. The knowledge of good and evil came over mankind by the rebellion of the first human beings.

As any good Father, God also had to bring punishment over those wrongdoers and sent them out of the Garden of Eden. From a lovely world where they could have lived for ever in peace, they entered a dark or grim world where they had to work hard to stand up.

As a loving Father He did not leave His creatures on their own but provided Guidance by His Word and always kept an eye on them. To make sure that they would again have no excuse He also gave mankind His Law.  That Torah or Written Law should be our guide. We should follow those instructions and listen carefully to those Words of God which can transform us.

Judaism teaches that God continues His interest in everything that happens in the universe. With the exception of free moral choice, which God has delegated to us, everything that occurs in the universe is of Divine origin, although He may operate through the vehicle of the physical laws of nature.

As creations of the Most High Divine Creator, we should come to consider Him as our Father and should live up to His expectations. Like we do have to build up a good relationship with our worldly parents we also do have to maintain our relationship to God, to a Father Who not only begot us, but remains involved in our lives.

Some people, like Muslims have a wrong idea about begetting or to beget. To beget something means to cause it to happen or be created. Many take to beget to mean

To produce (offspring) by sexual reproduction. Used especially of a man. {Free Dictionary on Beget}

and forget its many other meanings, like to cause, bring, producegenerate, to induce, or to bring about. the heavenly Father created and as such brought in effect, provoking beings to live on the globe and to give rise to the human race. Precipitating, inciting or engendering male and female beings populating the earth and living life.

That living life by the fall of man comes now to and end for every person at an other time. It’s not over until it’s over. As long as you are alive, you have the opportunity to work at your own personality and to do more and to work on it to be more.

As you perhaps might know, your own self-image is based on what has already happened in your life, what you have already done, and how you have already acted. As long as you are alive, you can choose thoughts, words, and actions that will greatly elevate your self- image.

You might complain about your self-image because you view your current self-image as a final reality. It isn’t. We human beings are works in progress as long as we are alive. If you aren’t satisfied with your self-image right now, say and do things that will raise your self-image.

Our Creator expect us to work at our self, though many christians do believe they do not have to work any more at themselves because Christ would have died for their sins, and as such they think being saved they are free from any work and whatever sin they might do, they are forgiven. Sorry for them who believe such thing. It might well be that they shall miss the entrance to the Kingdom of God.

The Most High presented mankind His Word for a very good reason, that man would listen to it and take it into account. The given Word of God has imperative verbs, which means they are commands, not suggestions, not good ideas, not just helpful hints, but things we should take at heart and even take serious. We should see that throughout the ages God has given many mitzvah, precepts we should not ignore. We should recognise them as orders which God gave to mankind to follow.

By reading the Bible regularly we can come to understand and see ways how to “rejoice” and “not to be anxious”, but “letting our mind dwell” and “practice”.

From there onwards we also can put a reminder in our house for working at our characteristics, which shall have us think about all the matters God wants to see in us.
