Are we Misusing the Law of Attraction?

Everywhere we turn today someone is talking about the Law of Attraction, a universal law that in a nutshell says that what we put out into the universe comes back to us.  It works for anyone  regardless of intent and can be used for good or evil.

The Law of Attraction applies to all of life, not just money.   I see the current emphasis on using this universal law for financial gain as a dangerous game causing people to feel inadequate and see themselves as failures if they do not have lots of money.  How many blog posts focus on financial success and perceived moral failings of those who do not achieve it?  Do we really believe  wonderful, caring, creative people who use their gifts to help others without focusing on accumulating personal wealth are failures?

In the Christian Scriptures we are promised our needs will be provided, not that we will have unimaginable material wealth.  In our mad search for “success” and wealth have we lost track of what really matters?  How many families have suffered?  How many children lose their way because parents are too busy working to teach and care for them?  How many see faith as how much money they give to the church rather than how much time they spend with the Creator?

Search your heart, pray, meditate and set your priorities.  Dare to be different.  Dare to care about others more than becoming a millionaire.  Do what you love and the money will follow.
