God Thinking VIII - Ministering In The Spirit 9

"The Word says in Matthew 7:1-2
“Judge not, that ye be not judged.
V2 For with what judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.”

God thinking allows the Spirit of God within you to commune with your spirit for the purpose of giving you the mind of Christ.

With the mind of Christ you can take the higher path.  Here’s where we get confused.  Because of past teachings and some beliefs we have acquired by default - we think of the higher path as something that is for the cleric or guru, the priest or the pastor or an enlightened one. 

In some religions it is thought to be one who has reached ‘nervana’, or to become ‘clear”.  And for our friends the cucumber worshipers, the higher path might be in the way you pick your cucumbers. 
Note: I know this is ridiculous, but there are those who worship vegetables.

But in essence, the higher path has nothing to do with what you are called or what you do for a living. It has everything to do with who you are and how you think.

Choosing the higher path is when you allow God to have input into how you do your job or how you handle a situation.
As a body mechanic the higher path might be found in an ethical question that arises during a restoration project.  He or she finds a rather costly but needed repair that was missed in the estimate.  Do you tell the owner or the body shop and disclose the unfortunate discovery, taking the chance that you might get in trouble.  Do you tell the customer and take a chance of having them think you are incompetent?"
