Machiventa: "Greetings to you all. This is Machiventa. On this Good Friday, I would like to talk about strengthening your soul."
"As you go about your daily life on Urantia, it is so very easy to get caught up in the fast lane, and those of you who are almost always in a hurry tend to take little time to consider what there is to gain by the strengthening of your soul.
"This soul entity will go with you to the mansion worlds, and in its existence there you can strengthen the soul even more, but there is nowhere in the universes where this can be achieved more effectively than it can be achieved on the evolutionary worlds.
"The small things you do here for others mean such a lot, and these contributions are indeed written on the ledgers of your lives' histories.
"A little time each day to still the mind, and give thanks to, and communicate with the Father, may entail "the time lost to other activities" of just fifteen minutes of your day, and these fifteen minutes are sufficient in the eyes of your Creators. For you to have faith in this being true is all-important.
"Gather the strength to so stand in the presence of your God, for it will not only strengthen your soul, but it will also to make your life more rewarding.
"Your life on this earth is not a trial run for what is to come hereafter, but a reality. Do stop to realize that great soul strength is the product of the many small endeavors of day-to-day life.
"There will be a great many "stars" put on your chart of life when you take the opportunity to love, to assist, to encourage, your brothers and sisters, because this strengthening of the human soul is the goal of mankind.
"Think of the future and take decisive action -- from these small, everyday actions of being aware of your fellows' needs, to the small actions of kind words for another, and the expression of love whenever you see the opportunity to change your world by beginning with yourself.
"You will experience the pleasure of knowing that your soul growth is progressing well, when so many of your opportunities could be lost if you were to insist on remaining static. Freely give your love to your fellows, and you will reap the benefits.
"I send you my love. Goodbye for now.
"I am Machiventa."
