Gods Love is unconditional................is yours???
Gods type love is........
In a word or two " Gods love" It is truly unconditional. A parents love should be. All should strive to love in this type love. For it should never matter if you approve of their opinions, dress, finances, or lifestyle. However it helps to have much in common for a close friendship or intimate relationship.
When we fully accept others ....as they are.......who they are and will become....we give them a gift that is priceless. They can go about their days feeling and knowing that they are special This is not an arrogant love......it is actually a humble type love. For no one has to jump through hoops or pretend they are someone that they are not.......and the outcome is awesome. For being kind, patient, understanding makes a person feel heard , appreciated and yes loved. In turn they go out and apply this to others.
I stopped dealing with quite a few people in my life due to after 30 years of trying to make them feel all that I have discussed so thus far......all I received was that I wasn't good enough in their opinion and my thoughts were not worth hearing and all I could ever see is that they them selves needed work on their christianity and God type love. After many decades I gave up as their negativity towards me and often others ( gossip is one form) made me realize that I deserve , desire and need to be around positive people with Godly love. My health is getting worse and when I associate on a regular basis with positive folks...I feel better and have more to give back.
Everyone has bad days......and that is understandable as we are human and have our faux pas... but to allow ones negative thoughts on us or about us......... is to start feeling miserable about ourselves. Therefore my blog today is trying to reach others and make them understand it is vital to love in a God like manner. To show all that complete acceptance .and if you do this you will feel better inwardly and have more smiles outwardly.
Treat your family as well as the new guest in your home.......make your children feel special ..even tho they made a D in math..........tell them how proud you are of them and that you know they did their best............most will do better if they can ......with that last remark especially. Take the time to know your elders and spend time knowing your children.............Once God is in your heart , all this comes naturally!! Peace on earth and goodwill toward men ........will become a daily thought and prayer..........not just at the holiday season!
