555 You Should Pursue Positive Progress

God hopes that people are able to understand His will, that they can be of one mind in satisfying Him for the sake of shared ideals, and can advance together on the road to the kingdom. What need is there to come up with unnecessary notions? Whose existence up until today has not been for the sake of God? And since it is thus, what need is there for sorrow, grief, and sighing? This is of no benefit to anyone. People’s entire lives are in the hands of God, and if it were not for their resolution before God, who would be willing to live in vain in this empty world of man? Why bother? Rushing in and out of the world, if they do not do anything for God, will their entire lives not have been wasted? Even if God does not deem your actions worthy of mention, will you not give a smile of gratification at the moment of your death? You should pursue positive progress, not negative regression—is this not better practice?
