To extend is a fundamental aspect of God which He gave to His Son. In the creation, God extended Himself to His creations and imbued them with the same loving Will to create. T-II.1.1:1-2
No child of God can lose this ability because it is inherent in what he is, but he can use it inappropriately by projecting. The inappropriate use of extension, or projection, occurs when you believe that some emptiness or lack exists in you, and that you can fill it with your own ideas instead of truth, T-II.1.1:6-7
We are called to extend God’s unconditional love. Instead we often project our lack and inadequacy onto others and try to “fix them.”
In Alcoholics Anonymous it is often said that we should be taking our own inventory and not everyone else’s.
In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person by extending God’s unconditional love to everyone. Salvation of the world is when everybody loves everybody all the time.
Today, be aware of extending God’s unconditional love to everyone who crosses our path whether physically or in our mind.
