For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. (Galatians 5:13 NLT)
Friendship doesn’t have to be a do-or-die thing. It does not have to be coerced. If instead of free will, there is something like a rope being pulled to induce the other person’s attention, then that’s not a healthy friendship.
Friendship is love without wings. It is never a forceful 50-50 job. It is reciprocal just like love is. Christ first loves us, which implies we ought to love equally well. In other language, we share or spread out the love our Lord conferred upon us.
David loved Jonathan and Idem. Living in freedom means never ceases to love irrespective of whatever offenses someone committed to annoy us. Living in freedom without abusing the good will of God over our lives, entails learning to say no to the spirit of grudges.
May the Lord teach us not to waste our divine wisdom in Him in Jesus name,
And the LORD will be king over all the earth. On that day, there will be one LORD —his name alone will be worshiped. (Zechariah 14:9 NLT)
Situating human beings in a prosperous area of life require enormous sacrifices. The philosophical perspectives, which everyone has regarding the second person next to him, are probable to be derived from occurrences or personal opinions.
Anyone’s imagination of the definition for the moral doings depends on what he or she considers the other persons’ attitudes and the final judgment given may either be positive or negative.
Love is unmodified. It is fixated. It causes no injury, no biased retribution, no withholding of valuable information from those in need of it, no demeaning others, regardless of their skin col our or accents or language or education and social background.
Torrential downpour of civil warfare, gender inequality, child labor, trafficking of vulnerable women and children, divorce, terrorism, misjudgments, social deprivation, sexual and domestic violence, lack of human rights, et cetera, is significant evidence of authentic love missing in action.
Conforming to Christ implies loving unconditionally. When this is amiss, chaos sets in. And the above-mentioned is no doubt going to continue unless we embrace the divine love of Christ.
When Jesus Christ comes back, how do we expect him to see us? One another or fighting one another?
In the name of Jesus I pray,
Then she took Esau’s favorite clothes, which were there in the house, and gave them to her younger son, Jacob.
(Genesis 27:15 NLT))
In childhood, we ate jointly in the same bowl five
Five of us: big and small, firstborn to the last born.
We dined every other night. It was mother’s idea.
She thought by that we would remain as one.
Forever as one as a family.
Now she ought to look back to see how united we are
Are we at all?
In childhood we worn identical clothes.
Mother sew us different styles with colourful material dresses
Of silk, organza, lace and all you can name.
She said we must not forget that we are brothers and sisters.
By goodness. What was she thinking?
Now as I look back
I wonder whether at all,
She’s indeed raised up closely knit children,
