About Love 2

The second step is to Love yourself. I know you want to take a pass and believe its a given, but I beg to differ. There are a lot of people who don't love themself.

1. Do you have a low self esteem
2. Do you believe you are not special.
3. Do you wish you were someone else (that fine gal or rich dude)
4. Do you never take your words serious.
5. Are you patient with yourself or too harsh (Do you allow yourself to make mistakes)
6. Do you dress unimportantly or half naked (Do you cherish your image)

...... There are so many questions to ask our self. You have to love yourself before you can love your neighbor (remember the golden  rule LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF) so it implies if you don't love yourself  then you can't love your neighbour.

About Love

Love to me seems to be the most interesting, confusing, and misunderstood topic in the world . What is love? Or what does it really look like. Is it the beating of the heart, or the kissing of the lips. Is it the moans of pleasure or the hug of a mother. Is it the commitment of a friend or the ring on a finger..

I really wanted to understand what love is then I went to search the scriptures (The writings of the originator of love) and I found some interesting characteristics of it. Oh we all know it but I will still write it for the sake of those who don’t.

Love is PATIENT, KIND, DOES NOT ENVY (kinda hard especially when another is favoured above you), IS NOT PROUD, IS COURTEOUS, NOT ANGERED EASILY, THINKS NO EVIL, DOES NOT REJOICE IN SIN.(e.t.c paraphrased from 1 Cor. 13, Read the whole chapter jare)

I can go on and on but if you really want to experience and exhibit true love, all of these traits should be seen in you ............yeah yeah, I can read your mind. How possible can that be, It seems like a high record. I will be posting from time to time how each trait can be related to your love life, but, how can I possess all these traits? Is it possible? I know those questions are on your mind. I believe it is possible but there are three steps to achieve  it.

1.    You need Love in your life:
 God is Love and if we have him in or life, we can now be on our journey of not only experiencing but exhibiting true love. Are you wondering why your life seems to be so full of hatred? Do you really yearn for someone who can love you despite your inadequacies? Then I have got good news for you. Jesus is that person. He took me from the dunghill of sin, inadequacies and uglyness. I felt so dirty, Yet he picked me up and cleaned me up(for real)
