The Master Keys System lesson in week 5 of the Master Keys Mastermind Alliance tells us we cannot receive the omnipotent power unless we give it . We are to be “channels” of the power. To quote author Charles F. Haanel, “we are each of us but the channel through which the Omnipotent power is being differentiated into form…..the more we give, the more we get.”
This reminds me very much of the chorus we sing in The Salvation Army: “Channels only, Blessed Master, but with all Thy wondrous power; flowing through me, thou canst use me, every day and every hour.”
The more I give of myself to others, the more God’s power will flow through me. If I stop giving out, the power will stop flowing in. This is illustrated by the lively Jordan River flowing into the Dead Sea. It is called the Dead Sea because there is no outflow from it, therefore nothing lives in it.
Giving of myself takes work and effort, but it produces great rewards of blessings.
