Oyasama once said:
“Earnestly tell others how you were saved.”
Anecdotes of Oyasama, no. 100
Imagine your little children telling their friends such things as:
“My dad is great! Every day he works hard at his company to take care of the family. Because of him, we don’t have to worry about anything.”
“When I was sick with a fever, my mom was so worried she stayed next to me all night. She helped me drink water and put a cool damp cloth on my forehead. I was so happy. She also made me soup that tasted so good. I’ll never forget it. I could recover so quickly because of my mom.”
If you hear your children boast about you and tell others how grateful they feel to you, don’t you feel happy? You might even be moved to tears.
So imagine the delight of God the Parent and Oyasama when we tell others how boundless God’s workings are and how Oyasama saved us. This can be a wonderful way of making repayment for the blessings we receive and showing our love for God the Parent and Oyasama.
