The Correction Game

Beloved

(I believe God is giving me a challenge, and I wanted to share the idea with you. We’d love to hear what happens if you try it.)

The Father says something like this: I would like to play a challenging new game with you. It concerns changing a longstanding habit. We’ll call it The Correction Game. It’s a challenge few can meet, but remember, I am the helper and I’m here to help. You will receive a golden-glory-God-gift* for every point you make.

A word to start, this is a game where making a point means not making a point. It is called, “The Correction Game,” because when you play, you will change from showing off how wise and smart you are, to letting someone else feel worthwhile. It’s one way to express Our love, yours and mine.

Now this is just for casual conversation and every day exchanges and it’s a game. I will tell you any time I want you to do otherwise and you will correct only in important matters and then use only the words I give you.

Your mother told you: “Politeness is to do and say, the kindest thing in the kindest way.” Stick to that and you’ll be a good player.

For example when you’re playing the game and a person of another language says stinking instead of stinging, let it go.

When someone you love won’t listen, let it go and give them permission to talk. Invite them to play the game.

1When someone says that apples grow on orange trees and the moon is square, remember you don’t know everything. Perhaps somewhere in the universe these things are true, let it go.

It’s my job to correct people and I have all kinds of gentle ways to do it. I am able to take care of what you perceive as mistakes of others. By the way, my dear, you’ll enjoy people a lot more and they’ll like you better, too. Overlooking the faults and mistakes of others sends a big message of unconditional love.

Try me now in this and see if you don’t receive blessings of serendipity and synchronicity that will thrill you in large and small ways.

*God’s-golden-glory-gifts happen when unexpected good things come into your life.

 

Beloved, Let us Love One Another

      Yours was the first comment I saw about the correction game. You are so right. It’s not only hard, it’s impossible, but a small success (if even for an instant) yields grand surprises.
