"Don't Hate, but Love!"
How are you my read.cash mates? Its Thursday today! Weekend is fast approaching again. What make you busy today? How was your grinding goals over there?
Anyways, for this article, I will going to share what I have read earlier this morning. Its all about God's Words. You know, I am imperfect but I will try to take the challenge to share what I have learn about reading God's message for His people. So bare with me, and may the Lord God bless everyone of us...
"How are we expected to "love our enemies?" Jesus offers us an answer when he tells us to pray for them. So often we think of love as just an emotion, something we have no control over. While it is true that we can't always control our feelings, we can control our actions, and love is a function of the will, not the heart." - Frances Taylor
At some point, I have the feeling of guilt of not controlling myself to feel the hatred for someone who attack me, my way of living, and my family. Well, let's just admit that we are just humans, imperfect being. We cannot control our emotions especially when we are being hurt by someone whom we love and we trust. The thinking of revenge is there. No doubt. But we are expected not take action against them. If we do, are we as wrong as they are? Its very ironic to think that some people use violence to bring about peace. IT DOESN'T WORK that way.
Do we realize that our enemies are still God's children loved by him just as we are? "God does not want us to hate, but to love." - Luke 6:27-31
Come to think of it, when we take words into action, the thing of seeking revenge to someone who hurts us, do we think that we are not hurting God that way? The fact that, even our enemies are God's children, do we manage to think about Him? For His sake? We should always remember that even we are sinful, God never forsake us. Even into our enemies. God is a loving and forgiving Father, so we should do the same to our enemies. Instead of resenting them, we should pray for them.
"Prayer is a very powerful force." All we need to do is look at the changes brought about over the years by constant prayer. It may not have happened as quickly as those of us who can barely wait for water to boil would have liked, but it happened. "Change doesn't happen overnight, but is does happen – one loving heart at a time." We can begin with our words and move on to our actions. Words of prayer and love can open the stoniest of hearts. As the song says, "Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me."- Frances Taylor
It may take some time to forgive them, but we should not close our doors for them. Remember, we are imperfect human beings. They may have hurt us, but we have done it too. So, we should free ourselves from hatred. We should learn to forget, forgive, and the most important thing, we should always bare in my mind to "Love our Enemies", because they are God's people and God doesn't want us to hate, but to love!
