"Don't Hate, but Love!"

Greetings! 😊

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!

Can you accept this challenge?

Same as to u, sis. Kapag talaga involved si fam and our way of living, feeling ko nawawala control ko sa sarili ko. Para bang may nati-trigger na bad emotions and all but having a thought of revenge? Oh no no. Si God na bahala sa kanila, basta 'dun ako sa makakapagbigay ng peace of mind sa akin. ✨

Yun nga sis eh. Ako, mabait naman talaga ako, pero pag family ko, buhay ko ang pinapaki.alaman kahit wala naman ako'ng ginagawang masama, yun na...Lalabas talaga ang ugali ko'ng hindi makakain, kahit nang aso. Haha..

Kaya, hangga't sa kaya kung pigilan yung emotions ko, umiiwas talaga ako sa mga taong walang ibang ginawa kundi makialam sa buhay nang ibang tao..

Sometimes it's hard to forgive when that person cause so much pain. When all you did that time is cry and cry, without someone to lean on. However, forgiveness should be given so that it will thw heart light and happy

Korek sis. To the point that ending your life is the only option. But thinking on the brighter side of it, especially when you know that God is with you all the time, it will become possible.

Indeed, teacher, don't close it partially open hehe. In myself I honestly not that easy to forget the people who did a bad thing to me, well it takes time really, especially if that was so deep and heartbreaking. Just that time really affects its healing of course.

Honestly this is closely related to the article I just shared a few minutes ago. and honestly I often become like a mask that always covers what I should do when I hear the word, and this verse that you load often makes me guilty because honestly I have limitations not to hate but I always try to be like this but sometimes come back like man who has the limit of patience. have to introspect

To bring about unity there must be love. And not just love but genuine and pure love from the deepest part of our heart

It doesn’t matter whom. We should always show love.
