I was happily surprised to read this re Michael's Bestowal on Urantia:

"In the course of each of these preceding bestowals Michael not only acquired the finite experience of one group of his created beings, but he also acquired an essential experience in Paradise co-operation which would, in and of itself, further contribute to constituting him the sovereign of his self-made universe...

... Michael, therefore, had a double purpose in the making of these seven bestowals upon the various orders of his universe creatures: First, he was completing the required experience in creature understanding which is demanded of all Creator Sons before they assume complete sovereignty. At any time a Creator Son may rule his universe in his own right, but he can rule as the supreme representative of the Paradise Trinity only after passing through the seven universe-creature bestowals. Second, he was aspiring to the privilege of representing the maximum authority of the Paradise Trinity which can be exercised in the direct and personal administration of a local universe..."

Even the Lord of All REQUIRED experience on Urantia to further His growth........ When a person is well-read and well-travelled at age of 25, he or she cannot understand /accept he will grow/ mature/ change - and be different at age 35, 45, even 50+.

"Can we not develop Great Wisdom by reading alone? By studies, by discussions, by reflection."

No............. and ........... no. Experience is absolutely required.

p.s. of course an oldie can be wrong on an issue, while a teen-ager can be correct on the given issue. BUT in general a particular individual will change, mature, get a higher measure of wisdom as he interacts with others in Real Life Experiences. Even the Lord grew from experience.

yes, isn't it just so very touching to the human heart that the ruler of a universe would have to live a life of a human, get to know firsthand the experience of what it is to have to live as a human, knowing that this ruler has to have this experience in order to rule his own creation as a sovereign. and finally, the fact that the ruler of a universe is a man, very touching to the human heart. and very demonstrative of how much God loves, to bring this connection between the universe creator and various other order of beings, such as man.

That's a Cool Point you bring up Fatboy2. I hadn't thought about it much and didn't remember that. I'll have to take a look again.

Thanks! For bringing that up. GBU.
