The Sixth Day of Rebirth

On the sixth day we have the warm-blooded animals. We have all the land animals, and finally human beings. These are when we really begin to do things from faith and love together. Not just because we believe we ought to but because we really love to. We begin to take joy in serving other people. We begin to like it when we can do something for another person. We don't do it because of a sense of obligation. You know: "God says I have to do it, so I'd better do it." That was before. Now it is: "I really enjoy doing what's good and right. This gives me happiness inside, and I have pleasure and happiness from serving others."

These are the land animals, and finally the human beings. This is when we become truly human. When we're acting, yes, from faith, but especially from love in our hearts. When we're acting because we care about other people and because we love God, and when we get joy from serving one another. This is when we become truly human. At that point, we finally reach the seventh day. There is evening, and there is morning, and then there is the seventh day.
