Love One Another?!
How are you doing? How have you been? You know I really do care about my friends, my family, people I meet, and you!
I do not just say that, I truly mean it. I have have quite the life I have had a lot of hardships, challenges, rough times. I have had lots of blessings memorable, unreal and treasured moments. All of which has taught me to be who I am today. I am far from perfect but I work hard at staying cheerful, upbeat, kind, non judgmental, and encouraging loving. Not just because I am a beliver in Christ; who teaches us to Love one another. ツ John 15:12-13 “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
There are over 30 verses in the Bible talking about how we should treat each other as believers, some are listed here: https://www.biblelyfe.com/blog/bible-verses-to-help-us-love-one-another
Often times we forget that we are all human and we all have needs and emotions. We all have unique life’s. I say this all the time.. How you treat others matter.
Are you nice, do you loose your cool when you react ? Do you hold on to anger? Do you hate? We aren’t perfect and honestly the world we live in right now makes it harder. You are constantly asked what side you are on Pro whatever ——- Anti Whatever………..?????
I really don’t care what faith you have as long as you aren’t out to attack others. Our current society is pushing us to become divided and to turn us against each other. Don’t tell me I am wrong. The evidence is all around you.
We spent the majority of the past two years, where I live, to keep a distance from each other. That included Family and other grop gatherings, parks, restaurants, stores, ectara – were closed. There was forced separations from each other. We were mandated to wear masks. Almost completely shut down all forms of travel. So much so we got used to being alone and living in fear in our homes. Forgetting how to react to people we actually come in contact with. We are now face to face literally with people. However with the news and groups promoting fear and hate to others of all sides tryingtokeep us separated if not physically but also mentallyandemotionally… Am I wrong?
I don’t know about you but I do not want to live a life of fear. I want to live a life of Love. I don’t care what side you are on. You are welcome to your own opinions and feelings. I am not trying to devalue them. If they matter to you – they matter to God. So they matter. At least that’s How I feel about all the subjects.
I do not want to be judge and jury. I would rather change the world one person at a time with Love. To let you know you matter and that you are important. No matter what you think or “so called side your on” . God loves us… He loves you and we have a bigger enemy out there that wants to drive a wedge between us all and tear us all apart.
He is the Devil….. My favored verse isn’t ツ John 10:10 for nothing. It says : The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. Meaning Jesus came so we could live a better life if we so choose too. Have you ever taken the time to think about your actions? Your words? That what if you do and how you treat others matters?
I am not here to scold or punish you. Nor is God. He loves you and He wants the best for you. ツJeramiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” He doesn’t want you to waste time beating yourself up… Heck I am sure you already struggle with your self worth enough. That’s why he encourages us to love one another. Because Love is powerful and it changes lives. Think about how much we could change if we could come together and work together for the good. Hate only leads to war and lives lost….. Is that what you want? More death? I am not trying to be dramatic but I think we all need a dose of reality… Maybe that’s what I should have titled this post instead of Love One another….
How do you wanna change the World? Honestly – It is up to you who you want to be and how you want to treat others.
You have more power then you realize… Please start thinking about your actions, your words and how you can love the people in your life and treat the strangers you come across. Anger comes easy. You have to work at kindness and love.
What is remembered more? Acts of anger or acts of love in your daily life?
( I am not referring to abusive relationships’ those are bad and if you are in one you should and seek help! )
I can say honestly I often forget about being cut off, treated badly after a while. However acts of love stick with me. Why? Because they touch my heart they heal my soul and lift me up.
If you know about DeepyRootedInHim.net you may me asking why didn’t I post this there. I choose to post this here because the topic is so close to my heart. Because it is my main message in life. If I do anything in my life or I am known for anything. I want it to be that I helped and encouraged you to Find Love in your life and to be loving and kind to others. That’s what Valentine’s Day is all about right? It celebrates love and to me it’s not just for couples but for all people. That’s one of the greatest things my Dad ever taught me. To treat all with respect and love. If they deserve it or not. Pray for them, Ask God to heal their hurts and try to forgive their mistakes and wrongdoins… Because holding anger and hate in your heart hurts you more then it hurts anyone else..
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Good night 😴
