January 7

Sequential Quote:

...The material creature's highest possible concept of the Universal Creator is embraced within the spiritual ideals of the exalted idea of divine personality. Therefore, although you may know that God must be much more than the human conception of personality, you equally well know that the Universal Father cannot possibly be anything less than an eternal, infinite, true, good, and beautiful personality.... (27.4) 1:5.2


Truth, Beauty & Goodness
In
The Urantia Book


Complement:

...The Universal One of Infinity. I AM as I AM. This is the stasis or self-relationship of Infinity, the eternal fact of infinity-reality and the universal truth of reality-infinity. In so far as this relationship is discernible as personality, it is revealed to the universes in the divine Father of all personality--even of absolute personality.... (1155.4) 105:2.11

Sequential Quote:

 

...I naturally love one who is so powerful in creation and in the control thereof, and yet who is so perfect in goodness and so faithful in the loving-kindness which constantly overshadows us.

Sequential Quote:

Truth, Beauty & Goodness

In

The Urantia Book

 

Complement:

January 18

Sequential Quote:

 

...Righteousness implies that God is the source of the moral law of the universe. Truth exhibits God as a revealer, as a teacher. But love gives and craves affection, seeks understanding fellowship such as exists between parent and child. Righteousness may be the divine thought, but love is a father's attitude.... (41.3) 2:6.2

Truth, Beauty & Goodness

In

The Urantia Book

 

Complement:

 

...Love, the love of a father for his son, becomes the central truth in the universe relations of Creator and creature--not the justice of a king which seeks satisfaction in the sufferings and punishment of the evil-doing subject.... (2018.1) 188:5.2

Truth, Beauty & Goodness

The Urantia Book

Sequential Quote:

 

...Divine truth, final truth, is uniform and universal, but the story of things spiritual, as it is told by numerous individuals hailing from various spheres, may sometimes vary in details owing to this relativity in the completeness of knowledge and in the repleteness of personal experience as well as in the length and extent of that experience....
