Practical Living – A Radiant Life (Teaching 852)

This is classic teaching; a very practical and useful teaching.  It has been taught many times with some variations; Dr. Weirwille called it “The Secret to Radiant Living.”  It is just the way to live a radiant life by looking to God.  The basic theses is this: if you look to yourself and focus on your problems you’ll be miserable, if you look to others and focus on their successes or failures you’ll be distracted, but if you look to God you’ll be both peaceful and radiant.

Practical Living: The Power of God unto Salvation (Teaching #853)
