You are not ready to receive; you do not yet have the capacity to receive the treasure I want to give. The treasure is ready, but the container is not ready. You have to make the container ready before wanting to receive the treasure. In the meantime, someone else who has been working hard may come and take the treasure. I don’t like that. I want you to have that treasure. That is why I am pushing you along the road of suffering and difficulty so that you are able to develop your capacity to hold the treasures that are waiting for you.
Seven years ago, 1979, sixty-one Japanese members were invited to New York. They were each given a $100 bill and told, “You are the pioneers of the fishing business, the seafood business. Go forward, pioneer the way and come back with prosperity.” This year that same group came back and reported that without a doubt they have made the strongest of foundations in the fishing industry. That kind of foundation is spreading throughout the country. Why are these Japanese brothers winning? Because they think, “I am responsible for this business. This isn’t anyone else’s business. It is my business. It is my Heavenly Father’s business.” With that thought in their minds and hearts, they work harder and faster.
When they go forward like this, totally united in their soul and mind with the purpose of God, the blessing of God is always with them. The result is that their business is simply growing by leaps and bounds. Based upon that, we are going to pioneer in the same way with several hundred more members. Each one will be just like a seed. They will be given the same amount of money to start with. I know that if they follow exactly the same course as the first pioneers, they will succeed without a doubt.
Just inherit the methods and attitudes of these older members. You have that capacity and potential. You can double and triple their result.
