There’s support for the Law of Attraction all over the Bible.
These verses are from Matthew, the part known as the Sermon on the Mount.
Matthew 7:16 “You will know them by their fruits.”
Use this verse to remember how to discern if another person is sharing information that can be valuable to you. For example, would you follow a person who is broke but they want to teach you about financial success? Their fruits (being broke) tell you that the information is no good. Law of Attraction (the modern explanation talked about in The Secret and in other popular philosophy today) says that as you think, you receive. In other words, your thoughts are like a tree that produces fruit.
Matthew 7:8 “For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”
This concept is raised a few times in the Sermon on the Mount. Look also at Matthew 21:22. I’ve never seen anything in the Bible that says “ask, and if God deems you worthy you might get it, but don’t hold your breath.” The Bible is full of stories of overcoming (Job), of living badly and succeeding anyway (the prodigal son), and of believing and achieving completely with God’s help (Abraham).
” 2He called a little child and had him stand among them. 3And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5″And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. 6But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”
This part is about belief. Remember being a child at your birthday, or before a special event? I remember a trip to the circus when I was 6 years old. I learned about the trip a month before we went – I was beside myself I was so excited.
If you can remember that kind of excitement – before you got your first bike, or being so excited about seeing a friend the next day – then you can tap into the power inside of the Law of Attraction (The Secret).
There’s nothing wrong or bad about the Law of Attraction, or The Secret. Take the message and create the right life for you. If cars and money aren’t your thing, then create a way of doing service for humanity. What you think of and believe you will create.
Researchers say you’ll think about 60,000 thoughts in a day. Why not consciously decide to think about things you like and let good things manifest in your life as a result? God loves you – how could it be any other way?
