Metaphysical meaning of Sacar (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Sacar (mbd)
Sacar, sa'-car (Heb.)--hire; wages; rental; fare; stipend; reward; wage earners; laborers.

a "The Hararite," father of Ahiam (I Chron. 11:35). In II Samuel 23:33, he is called Sharar the Ararite. b Fourth son of Obed-edom, doorkeeper in the house of Jehovah, in David's reign (I Chron. 26:4).

Meta. Sacar (hire, wages, reward, wage earners, laborers, the name of two Israelitish men) clearly points to the thought of spiritual life and service from a standpoint of earning one's salvation, one's good, eternal life, instead of accepting it as a free gift of God through the Son the Christ, the true self of each individual. While there is truth in the belief that each one must work out his own salvation, yet in the knowledge of Sonship, which must take the place of the thought of labor, of working for wages, for reward, he realizes that he can do nothing of himself, but the Father within him expresses through him.
