Good day guys, how are you doing today? I trust that you've had a great weekend. Let's quickly review my previous article.
Whenever a person comes to you with a problem or an issue, I think the one of the best things you can do is to even show sincere concern even if it's a little. It can be in words but does only mean words, rather beyond words, you should show that you genuinely care. There are different ways you can show that you genuinely care, you can do that by listening to the person aptly and wholly, you can try to help if it's within your power to help, or you can link the person with someone you that can help to provide the adequate solutions. And when you show care, don't get too involved if you know you won't be available to help the person thoroughly as this might cause you emotional guilt. When you are trying to show care, you can do that by listening and offering advice if needed.
But what if they don't want your advice? Well, not everyone will want your advice, some people just need to a person they can talk to about their problem just to have a sense of release from their burden. When listening, do that silently and don't interrupt the person while at it. The person will feel comfortable to speak out and let it all out. Also do not change the subject, even if the problem seems small to you. This will help the person understand that you know how he or she fells instead of underrating the problem. What is a problem to another person might not be to you.
Special thanks to my sponsors, subscribers and also thanks to those who thumbs up and comment on my post, I really appreciate all of you.
Love and hate are powerful words that use parallel language to describe two opposite motivations. We hear the call for us to love our neighbor, but we also hear that we shouldn't love our neighbor as a way to eliminate our enemies. Instead, it encourages us to love our enemies as an act of good will toward those with whom we have conflict. This is both a hard and easy task. It's hard because there are people who seem to want nothing good for you, but it's easy because loving them requires so little of you. Our words have the capability to be full of both love and hate. Do you know what would happen if we used the same energy hating evil as we used loving good? If we used the same passion and intensity in thinking about all the things that are wrong in the world as we did in trying to figure out how to fix it? If we used the same enthusiasm when thinking about how things were bad than we did when thinking about how they could get better? And if we used the same consideration when trying to find ways to make things better than we did when trying to figure out why they were so bad? We'd live in a very different world.
When we love good, we love the way things are supposed to be, and we are motivated to defend them. Every time someone does harm to what is good and lovely in the world, we should be the first to rise up and say, "No!" When we hate evil, we love what is good and hate what is evil. We ought to hate all forms of evil because all forms of evil defile the good that God has made. When we fight against evil, we are defending what is good. We should ultimately love good and hate evil. That's why it's so important for us to realize that what we love directs our efforts and where we put our energies.
Love of the wrong things will waste our lives because it puts us on the wrong path; on a path away from who we were designed to be and toward self-destruction. It's easy to love what you want and what makes you feel good. We often love things that are easy to love, but that's not the same as loving what is good. Loving what is popular is not the same thing as loving what is best. It's often easier to love something that makes us feel good than it is to love something that we don't want to do. We should always be on guard to see if we are loving good or hating evil. There are certain things in this life that we should definitely love, and there are certain things that we must hate. Sometimes it's hard to disguise a bad thing as a good thing, but the devil rarely shows his true colors when he is tempting you. Thanks for reading through.
