I believe Love is a simple word yet has a great strength to rule someones heart and mind.
There are some times that I am bothered about a simple matter that most people don’t quite understand.
I bet we lose the old romantic love, the kind of love that most of us are seeking yet cannot achieve because of our heart longing of it.
I just wonder why a lot of people with a simple act of love make us fall so badly. And I realised that maybe because a lot of us doesn’t feel it everyday. That is why we are demanding for love too much. It’s a shame that a lot of man and woman fall in love so easily just because somebody showed a little care for them.
And I wonder why there are some people and a lot of christians are trying to avoid love.
Why are the meaning of it is getting out of shape? Why we change our views? Why are we afraid to take some risk?
And I thought that maybe because, we fear that some failed relationships out there would happen to us.
We are afraid that someone would break our heart.
Like if love is converted to money, I think we are so bankrupt in love. So if one got a chance to have one, he would grab it and some are keeping it too much without using it in the right way. If we are really really rich in love and it is overflowing then we do not have any choice but to give.
Maybe it is time for us to be unselfish because, love is not minding our own happiness. It is minding the need of our neighbour. It is not protecting our selves.
If Jesus would protect himself he wouldn’t let himself be nailed on the cross and if He is minding his own happiness then maybe He wouldn’t even try to walk on earth. But NO, Jesus loves us unselfishly.
You see my point is not to arouse and awaken the love but a brotherly love. I want us to love normally, to make it as a manner –
Love not to the only one but to everyone.
Besides, each one of us have a different love story hence we should not compare ourselves to others. It does not mean that if it works for them will also work for us. What’s important is that God is always there, whom we can always consult in every decision we will make.
As a christian I do not want us to under estimate the power of Love but to look beyond its meaning – because we are made of it and somebody died for us out of it. I want us to make a change or rather bring back the right love into its right meaning.
I do not believe in love to the only one and avoid people.
I do not believe in a wrong definition of guarding of hearts and avoid every boys and girls who comes along the way.
I believe in God. I believe in what He said that Love must show.
I believe that we should guard our heart because what we do, flows from who we are.
Love is the basic, and one of the things that our Lord God asked us to do.
His commandments was about it and nothing more.
-Mark 12:31- Love your neighbour as yourself.’There is no commandment greater than these.”
I am writing this not for all the people, but for the christians who are wise enough to understand.
I am writing this because I want us to promote love without any intentions but to love unselfishly.
To Love as how God asked us to.
So our standards would get higher and never would fall easily.
